You can look down on Portsmouth Harbour, which looks like a model from this height, and you can see as far as Chichester on a clear day and much of the Isle of Wight.

We were lucky we had beautiful weather for our visit and you could see for miles, the view was breath taking, definitely worth a visit, we bought a ticket here which also included the Mary Rose Museum and Harbour trip, which saves on paying for these separately.

We'll worth a visit, 3 platforms one has a cafe on you can sit and look out. Glass floor is worth sitting on if you dare, you are given a stamp on your hand and can go back as many times as you like that day, we went up again before heading to bus station. A must see.

great views from both platforms and the glass floor covers a fairly large area, the design of the tower is a bit different to others but its still much the same as towers in other countries. However if you've not done any other towers this will amaze you.

This modern steel tower shaped like a spinnaker sail, the view from the top is stunning and having a café up there makes for a really interesting and leisurely stay.
