#2 of 114 in Sightseeing in Hampshire
Observation Deck Tourist Spot
A curvaceous, billowing structure modeled after a sail to reflect Portsmouth’s history as a maritime town, Spinnaker Tower looms elegantly over the city’s harbor. Finished in 2005, the tower stands 170 m (560 ft) tall, and can be seen even from beyond the city limits. Take the elevator to one of the tower’s three observation decks and enjoy the view across Portsmouth and its surroundings.

  • Great views on a good day can see Chichester cathedral which is about 20miles away. There is a glass floor to walk on which does feel a bit strange so high up  more »

  • Paid £15 a head for entry and a small bottle of prosecco well worth it as you also get a reserved table on sky deck 2 and plenty of time to see the amazing views . Brilliant experience  more »

  • Just over a tenner each to go up 100 metres. One of the best value towers I've been up with plenty to see and lots of helpful staff. Well worth the money
  • Spent a good hour here taking in the views. Even had a nice cuppa and at a reasonable price. Had the option to come back later in the day which I though was a great idea. Only negative was that you had to have your photo taken before going in the lift. They super impose your picture on different views on the tower. The picture was a bit naff to be honest so not sure what the point was if there was no effort put in to taking it. Other than that a great attraction
  • Amazing views! The cafe is very typical, but nice to take a break. I've been up the tower several times, but I wouldn't recommend you come up to the tower on a day that is not clear, as viewing will be severely limited.
  • Always loved the place to relax and unwind after passing through Bay of Biscay. Nice view.
  • A bit pricey but a must do, best on a nice day for the views. Great expirience. Have done about 6 or 7 times
