Great views of the city and beyond, and information boards around the viewing area. We bought tickets off Groupon but even then we thought the price was a little steep. We spent about 30/40 mins here.

We visited the Spinnaker Tower when visiting Portsmouth for a few days. As it was celebrating my wife's birthday we chose the 'Sparkles Experience' and enjoyed a glass of prosecco sitting at a window table enjoying the views - it made the trip more special.

We visited here for the Tower and Sparkles Experience one Saturday. The table was booked from 3.30 -4.30 in The Clouds. However, as the table wasn’t booked after, we could have stayed longer. The tower itself has wonderful views overlooking the harbour, the Solent and...More

Wonderful views and at a reasonable price. We had a cream tea in the high-up cafe which was lovely. In the Summer I imagine the cafe would be very hot, unless they have blinds up, which would spoil the view. Who knows...?

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,

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
