Good experience to go up and see the view. However, nothing much when you get up there. Did have the pleasure of watching a lady celebrate her 100th birthday by absailing down the outside - brave lady

We started our short stay in Portsmouth at the spinnaker. I was a little worried about stairs as I have terrible joints but there weren't as many as I expected and they all had strong bannisters and well lit - not always the case! Really liked that staff were with us in the lift to give us information and for... More

We went to the Tower and were lifted to the top. The views are spectacular, we spent a good hour up there. There is a toughened glass walk through which I did not have the nerve to do although my husband and friend did. This is a must for all visitors, wonderful. Downstairs there is a sourvenere shop where you... More

As long as you have a head for heights this is worth the visit, and do stand on the glass platform it is an experience

I visited the Spinnaker Tower for the first time on Saturday having admired the building from below many times. It's a stunning structure and I enjoy seeing it in the distance from miles away as well as up close. On Saturday, I had signed up to abseil down the Tower for charity and decided that afterwards I would finally go... More

The viewing decks are amazing with great views all around. There are often special events on included in the price but of course can get very busy. Residents get a discount if they show two forms of ID and you can also book ahead on line for a discount. There is a viewing guarantee so you can go back another... More

We visited the Spinnaker Tower at the request of my teenage son and we all enjoyed the trip. I do think for what it is, its a touch on the pricey side as besides the view from the Tower there isn't a lot to do there. That said we did enjoy standing on the glass floor 110metres up in the... More

Been a few times to Portsmouth but the weather was always bed. Not yesterday. Couldn't have asked for better weather. You can see Chichester from one side and Foley refinery the other. It was such a clear day I'm sure we could see for the full 23miles they claim you can see on a good day. You do cram in... More

We enjoyed the view as much from the base looking up as we did from the observation deck. It is a very pretty structure against a blue sky.
