Portsea Island, Hampshire

Portsea Island is situated in off the coast of southern England, and
is in the waters known as the Solent. The small, flat and low lying
island is totally within, and contains a large proportion of, the city
of Portsmouth. It is the most populous of any island in the British
Isles excepting, of course, the mainland of Britain and Ireland. The
island is now mainly urbanised, and is connected to the mainland via
three road bridges (the M275 motorway, the A3 and the A2030), a
pedestrian and cycle bridge, and a rail bridge. Portsea is also used
as the name of an administrative district of Portsmouth, located in
the south-west corner of the island.
