Welcome to Portsmouth, the most densely populated city in England outside of London. A proud naval city, known for tightly knit communities, where generations of families have set down roots. A working-class island, some wards in Portsmouth rank among the highest in the Index of Multiple Deprivation. It is a city of contradictions, that has seen devastation from the Second World War and which voted heavily to leave the European Union in 2016, yet is called home by residents from all over the world who have emigrated to work in the docks and factories. In the Hidden Voices of Portsmouth we celebrate and raise awareness of little known-aspects of the city, telling accounts by three residents who offer their personal insights into the island. The trails are geolocated and accessible for free by downloading the Echoes app.
