I'm not sure what to expect, but I was left feeling disappointed. The views are good but within 10 minutes I was back on the ground and walking back to my car. A bit pricey for what it is.

You go to Spinnaker Tower for the view upstairs that is it. The cafe is ok but very limited and the so-called "garden" on the highest floor reachable was a total disappointment. That said, we enjoyed going up there for the first time and taking...More

This elegant tower not only presents good photo opportunities on the outside, but taking the lift up in the tower offers you breathtaking views of the surrounding area and the Solent.
