Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth

Observation Deck · Tourist Spot

Finished in 2005, the tower stands 170 m (560 ft) tall, and can be seen even from beyond the city limits.

  • Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. The staff at the top here very chatty and friendly. At the time my daughter was in a wheelchair and they were so nice and helpful. Great experience. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you
  • Amazing views from the top and If you are feeling brave they now offer a 'Drop' from the bottom section of the tower which look quite fun. They also have a lovely restaurant in the base of the tower also
  • Amazing views across Portsmouth and out to sea. The tower is surrounded by historical buildings, boats and people who are so proud of the history that randomly we had people just stop to give us information on what we were looking at. There are 3 floors to get the views from: 1 has the see through floor, one you can relax with a glass of wine and the last one is set up like you are in your back yard with deck chairs and plants. Loved every floor and every view!
  • From the top of the tower there is a spectacular view of the beautiful coastal town of Portsmouth. At the top there is a café with stunning views and a garden. There are bungee jumps and rope descents from the top of the tower for those who are feeling strong.
  • Great experience going up and the views across the Solent are amazing. Definitely recommend going up. Whole area around Tower really lovely, enjoyed walking around by the quay side. Hope to visit again soon.
