Really good with lits if things to see and puzzles to find. Colouring available in cafe downstairs, and reasonably priced food.

Not a bad priced attraction and the views on a sunny day are spectacular from the top floor , if you dare, stand or walk across the glass panel in the top floor capsule , scary for some

Fantastic views. Quick lift up and you are there. I thought this was better than the Shard. Dare yourself to stand on the glass floor 🤪. You can do this trip in under 20mins but your ticket last the whole day so you can keep...More

A must do if visiting Portsmouth on a clear day. The staff were very helpful prior to our visit when I contacted them re wheelchair access and carers tickets. Do pre book if visiting with a wheelchair as there are limits to how many wheelchairs...More

We were lucky the weather was soo good for this time of year so the views were superb. I’d consider it reasonable value for money as a day ticket allows you back in for revisits until closing time on the same day.

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

Hiya, has anyone been very recently to Afternoon Tea up the Spinnaker Tower? If so, was it good and good value? Many thanks

Sorry, not tried it myself. However if you put "afternoon tea Spinnaker Tower tripadvisor" in google or whichever search engine you use, you will find a number of replies, mainly pretty good.

Hi,we have tickets for the Spinnaker Tower, and wondered which would be the best sights to see for the rest of the day as they are so expensive we will probably only do one, but which one?? Also where is the best place to park to be close to everything. Thanks in advance,

Thanks I'll have a look at those options
Victory Prices (4 Replies)
Does anyone know the price of an HMS Victory tour?. I know you can buy tickets that include 2 or 3 different attractions/ships but its the Victory we really want to go on. Are there any discount vouchers available anywhere either? I`ve got a 20% off voucher for the Spinnaker Tower and wondered if there was anything available for the Dockyard tours which would be handy for a family of 5. Thanks for any help.

Hi , You can use Tesco Clubcard vouchers , towards the cost. Some train companys also have special deals. Also the family ticket is up to 2 adults and 3 kids
