This lovely 1 BR Vacation Home Rental to walk through Old Portsmouth today, with its cobbled streets, charming pubs and restaurants is a walk through maritime history. Narrow side streets and old fortitfications reveal a medieval community huddled together within town walls.Much still remains to entrigue. For over 800 years every English monarch with the exception of Mary Tudor, passed down the ancient High Street. It was in these streets that press gangs roamed seeking new recruits for the Navy, and where sailors took their ease, as sailors will! Standing proudly at the corner of Broad Street and High Street, the Square Tower was the official residence of the towns military governor.
