“Amazing Views of Old Portsmouth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

A photographer's delight - get your wide angle lens once on top of the Tower and you have the best view of Old Portsmouth and the Solent Bay. Even inside, the quality of brickwork is something to behold.

“Lovely for tea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We went to the craft fair in the Square Tower and there were some excellent stalls with local crafts. They have a proper tea-room with proper teapots and delicious cakes on the ground floor, perfect for a nice sit down!
