The views are good but the reflections from the glass do detract a bit. My Oh wanted to take some photos but they don't do it justice! Still worth seeing. The cafe downstairs is a good vantage point for the coastal path

This is a good place to take in the views over Portsmouth. On a good day you can see the Isle of Wright. The short film that is shown beforehand is very interesting.

Thought I would see what the view is like from the top. It costs £11 for adults, unlimited use for 1 day. Friendly staff, view is fantastic. Caution : if it's windy you can feel the tower move. Cafe on second is lovely to sit...More

The gun-wharf key car park is literally next door, a 2 min walk and you could be all done in half an hour or choose to spend longer and go to the cafe for a coffee whilst you are there and spend as much time as you like on... More

The lift only goes up as far as the cafe so if you want to go to the open air level at the top you have to take the stairs. Also be aware that to stand on the glass floor you must remove your shoes & there is nowhere to sit... More
