Discover Portsmouth is an especially well done visitor's center for the city of Portsmouth. The brief historical video about the area and Strawberry Banke provided information to help us better understand the history and community. We were given a coupon to save a total of $4 off our Strawberry Banke admission tickets. In addition to the video there are other... 更多
We met our walking tour guide on a chilly cloudy morning and were lead around Portsmouth while enjoying her very knowledgeable descriptions of the historical sites. All the participants were very happy with the tour especially as our guide ran overtime thus extending our enjoyment. Great value and a must when visiting Portsmouth.
They had a short historical video on the area and they gave guided walking tours. They have a gift shop with local artist work. Great map of the area as well.
very informative, learned a lot even though I've walked that area and been in several of the houses previously. Old photographs very helpful

I have visited the Discover Portsmouth Center many times. The changing art exhibitions are always extensive and informative. The bookstore is large and offers a well-stocked introduction to Portsmouth history and culture. On Friday September 9, I also took a one hour late afternoon walking tour--which was one of the enjoyable walking tours I've ever taken.
Thank you! Hope you come by for our next exhibit opening November 4th! 更多
The staff is wonderful and excited about their town. There is a great video to get the feel of the town, a nice gift selection, and plenty of informative guides.
Fantastic intro to this beautiful historic city. Guide Linda King was informative, friendly and funny! Perfect way to get bearings first time in town, and fit in a little exercise while doing it. Highly recommended. And you can't beat the price.....

The walk is not strenuous and the guide is very friendly and willing to answer questions. The visitor... 更多
