A GROUP of mayors and councillors from the Aarhus area of Denmark has visited Portsmouth to find out about the city’s tourism economy.
The group from the coastal city was given a tour of the city, and took particular interest in the seafront, including Gunwharf Quays and the Ben Ainslie Racing project in Old Portsmouth.
A walking tour was followed by tea in the Lord Mayor’s Parlour at Portsmouth Guildhall.
Cheryl Buggy, project director at Shaping the Future of Portsmouth, welcomed the Danish delegation.
She said: ‘They wanted to come here because they were very interested in the seafront and Shaping the Future. They came here on a fact finder. They were very serious and we had a thorough itinerary for them. It was really important for us to learn from each other.
‘It meant we could showcase what we have got and find out what they are planning to do in the future.’
