Gunwharf Quays is a shopping centre in Portsmouth which is home to over 90 premium retail outlet stores, a varied range of bars and restaurants, and a number of entertainment and leisure venues, all set against the stunning backdrop of Portsmouth Harbour.

Clothing outlets range from the fashionable likes of Ted Baker, Paul Smith, and French Connection to sporty stores such as Nike, North Face, and Animal, whilst Clarks, Doc Martens, and Vans boast a diverse range of footwear and Cath Kidston, Chapelle, and Claire’s offer accessories, bags, and jewellery.

The Body Shop, L’Occitane, and Boots cover beauty needs, and The White Company, Zwilling, and Bedeck are all ideal for shoppers looking to breathe new life into their homes with luxurious homeware at a fraction of the high-street prices.

At the end of a busy day of shopping, Gunwharf’s eclectic mix of bars and restaurants are the ideal places to unwind and enjoy a diverse selection of cuisines — Italian at Azzuro, Frankie & Benny’s, or Jamie’s Italian, Spanish at La Tasca, Latin at Las Iguanas, French at Brasserie Blanc or Café Rouge, Mexican at Chiquito, and many others.

As well as shops, bars, coffeeshops, and restaurants, Gunwharf Quays entertains visitors with the 14-screen Vue Cinema multiplex, Bowlplex, Grosvenor Casino, ever-rotating exhibitions at Aspex Gallery, powerboat rides and harbour tours from the Gunwharf Quays Marina, and miniature ship hire from Miniport Portsmouth.

Facing the harbour is Tiger Tiger, a restaurant by day and a nightclub from the evening into the early hours, with lunch, dinner, and drinks menus, and seven rooms of music to keep the party going through to 3:00am.

Also looking out over the marina is 24/7 Fitness, an unrestricted 24-hour gym which offers a fantastic array of classes as part of the £17.95-per-month membership.

Standing proud on the edge of the harbour is the Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth’s iconic sail-shaped attraction. Find out more about the Spinnaker Tower on Team Locals Places »
