Portsmouth has been named one of the five cheapest nights out in the UK

According to analysis by short-term loan firm Wonga, which looked at data from PintPrice and Numbeo, Portsmouth is the fifth cheapest place for a night on the town.

The statistics showed the average cost of a pint, as well as how much it would cost for a three-course meal, in the UK’s 30 largest cities.

According to the statistics, the average price of a pint in the city is £3, with the discounted drinks on student nights helping to lower the cost of going out even further.
