Ports

Gosport is a Borough town in the South Hampshire. Until the last quarter of the 20th century, Gosport was a major naval town associated with the defence and supply infrastructure of Her Majesty’s Naval Base, and is still home to HMS SULTAN and a Naval Armament Supply Facility as well as a Helicopter Repair base. The Gosport peninsula has 17 miles waterfront on Portsmouth Harbour and The Solent and is a maritime playground for all.

This city in Belgium is the capital of Antwerp province. With a population of 510,610 it is the most populous city in Belgium. Its metropolitan area houses around 1,200,000 people. Antwerp is on the River Scheldt, linked to the North Sea by the Westerschelde estuary. The Port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world, ranking third in Europe and within the top 20 globally. There is a theory about the name Antwerp: “The wharf where ships berth”.
