Paying a visit to the countless attractions of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard or shopping in Gunwharf Quays, and looking for something to do for yourself  or to entertain the youngsters? Portsmouth Miniport is an ideal outdoor pastime which fits right in with the city’s maritime seafaring legacy.

Miniport’s small vessels are huge fun to drive around for all ages. Each miniature ship is electrically-powered and very easy to control — no prior experience at the helm is needed!

Their 12-minute children’s ride makes for a memorable photo opportunity.

And if you’re not 100% satisfied with your boating experience, Miniport will give you a full refund without quibbles!

Miniport has a range of ships which are all made by the crew behind the attraction.

The two sites are within a short walk of one another. There is no entry fee to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard during opening hours, so just walk in and the Miniport can be found 80m in on the right-hand side, outside Action Stations.
