The Camber docks down in old Portsmouth is home to the local fishing fleet and has been a commercial port for centuries. On a cold winters day it's a nice place to wander around the back streets and take in the sights around Portsmouth harbour.
Across from the entrance is the modern development of Gunwharf Quay, designer shops, restaurants and bars, home to the Spinnaker Tower and some very expensive yachts.
The old Camber dock is getting pretty congested, twenty years ago it was possible to lay alongside the wall for the night even on a busy summer weekend.
Across in Gosport the old light vessel Mary Mouse provides showers, restaurant and bar and an unmistakable entrance to Haslar Marina.
