"Portsmouth … is one of the world’s most astonishing natural harbours, rivalling even Valletta in the way that it commands the Channel approaches to the Atlantic and the North Sea, and it looms over the French coast while sheltering in the lee of the Isle of Wight, which the conquering Romans once named Vectis.” Christopher Hitchens
