Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth

4.3
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.

  • The views from the spinnaker are amazing. We had high tea which was lovely only mini moan the scones were dry and not particularly fresh. Tom was extremely and looked after us well.
  • A must when visiting Portsmouth. A bit pricey but the views are fantastic. The staff are helpful and friendly. Walk on the glass floor, vertigo at its best. We'll worth a visit!!
  • It's such a great sight to visit. I would recommend to go there before you visit anything else, as you got a great view over Portsmouth and you can plan your route from up there at the café overlooking the harbour
  • The spinnaker tower is a beautiful building with amazing views, shop and a bar near the top. I proposed to my Fiancee here at the top part of the building and she loved it. The bar was lovely and the shop has various of products. The atmosphere was light hearted and chilled out. You can go here and there is lots of children and it can get quite loud in the middle section but this is to be expected in such a landmark.
  • Staff were lovely, but the expense, coupled with the pretty average food means that all this place really has going for it is the views... which are lovely btw!
