Portsmouth

I enjoyed a day in Portsmouth with my dad today – one last English cathedral before we leave for Auckland in a few weeks! Portsmouth has an unusual cathedral, with sections of differing ages – the most modern part was finished in 1991. The tower has a nautical feel (this is the ‘Cathedral of the Sea’, after all) and the weather vane is a rather fine golden ship.
