This tourist attraction can be difficult to find open as it is often busy with private hire events, play productions, private business hires and weddings and funeral hires. It is steeped in history but short on detail - being principle a venue hire building.

Went to see a play here and the setting was very appropriate for the subject of the play. Also here for a wedding which was nicely done with plenty of parking nearby.

This is a beautiful venue. We have heard music here several times and will be back for more. Great acoustics, intimate atmosphere and the Square Roots organisers are welcoming. Always good beer, locally sourced. Parking is easy and the Solent laps gently just near the door of the venue. Toilets are basic, but clean and adequate.

What a good idea to put a trail guiding you to all the point of interest in the pavement. Walk through the shopping centre to the rear by the sea front and pick up the trail to guide you to the more interesting parts of old Portsmouth. with the exception of the Isle of Wight frry terminal you get to...

Excellent venue for functions, weddings and the occasional music gig. Several interesting pubs and restaurants nearby and within a 5 minute walk of Sir Ben Ainslies massive Americas Cup building.

I recently attended a wedding here and the whole occasion was excellent from start to finish and couldn't be faulted in any way whatsoever. The Square Tower itself is in a very good location, very interesting with history oozing out everywhere. The hosts, service by all staff, catering and ambiance of the place were all excellent with a very relaxed... More

I had my 30th Birthday Party here and it was amazing. Steve and Julia were ever so helpful, friendly and professional throughout from my initial enqurie to tidying up at the end of the night. It is a fantastic venue and I would recommend it to anybody.

We recently held our wedding and reception at the Square Tower and there isn't a grade high enough for us to award this venue . From the initial enquiry to the actual wedding everything was perfect .
