Our Day INCLUDES:
* Guided Tour of Portsmouth, NH – Settled in 1623, Portsmouth claims to be the nation’s third-oldest city. It served as a focal point on the Eastern seaboard until the late 1800s when rail travel did in the shipping industry. John Paul Jones’ ship The Ranger was built in Portsmouth, and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (which lies across the river in Maine) was established in 1800 as the country’s first Naval shipyard. Enjoy a riding tour of the city by our Best of Times Travel tour director.

* A Great Meal at the British Beer Company in Downtown Portsmouth! – In Great Britain, Ireland and across Europe, the pub or “local” is the center of town life: a place to relax, refuel the body and the spirit, share news and be entertained. The pub and restaurant of the British Beer Company in downtown Portsmouth, NH delivers that same atmosphere and service to Americans today. Enjoy our scrumptious custom designed menu for our tours. For those that want to walk on the wild side, the British Beer Company offers tons of British Ales, Stouts, and craft beers at your fingertips for the tasting. Once your lunch is completed take some time to browse the shops and sights within walking distance of the restaurant.

* The Harbor Cruise – Join us aboard the Victorian style M/V Thomas Laighton and experience the fascinating legends of our legendary New Hampshire & Maine Seacoast. Little known but historically crucial, the legendary Isles of Shoals, located 9 miles off our coast, are an intriguing archipelago of 9 islands steeped with history. As we glide through Portsmouth Harbor, we will see a unique working port with tugboats, tankers, the nation’s oldest and active naval yard, the closed castle-like prison- “the Alcatraz of the East”, our quaint Olde Port waterfront, a famous grand resort hotel, 5 historic forts and 3 lighthouses proudly guiding mariners safely through our waters. Our own Isles of Shoals historian will guide us through these same waters for the duration of the trip.
