Chichester is nice. Fishbourne Roman Palace, near Chichester, is good if you're into history.

Winchester is also lovely.

If you've got kids, try Marwell Zoo.

I read 1/2 as "half-day" rather than 1-2 days, so I picked places close to Portsmouth.

Anyway, you don't need a tour operator - just get on a train!

Take the train and within 90 minutes you can be in a charming little fishing port on the Thames called London ;-)

City, town or country side ? And can you clarify whether you need an overnight stay.

You could go to the New Forest quite easily (train to Brockenhurst, changing at Southampton). Or Brighton for the seaside.

Leeds.West Yorks.

New Forest, Bournemouth, Poole, all within easy reach, depending on the time of year, the New Forest would be my preference, lots of lovely villages to see.

Stonehenge. Winchester.

No ferries to Poole or Bournemouth, there's no point would take all day to do a journey you could do in an hour.
