This is OK but £8.95 per person is a shockingly high price and doesn't represent value for money for the duration of time you would spend up there.

I can get the same type of view free at Portsdown Hill. I would also warn people who might not be very fit, if they... More

we had probably the sunniest and hottest day of the year up the Spinnaker Tower. The view all round is stunning on a clear and sunny day. Definitely worth a visit if you ever go to Portsmouth

There are three viewing platforms with wonderful views of the harbour and beyond to Isle of Wight. ~The middle platform has a cafe so you can have a drink whilst enjoying the... More

Great views over Portsmouth and the Solent from this impressive viewpoint. Don't miss walking over the clear glass floor and looking all the way down, if you dare
