If your in Portsmouth you just have to visit the Spinnaker Tower, we were lucky to have a beautiful sunny day and the views were amazing, the glass floor is fun and the café on the ground floor is worth a visit

The tower isn't very high and the view is average. Too small an area for the number of people there. Then a ridiculous wait to get back down again in a queue that winds around and thru the cafe - very strange and poorly managed. We spent more time waiting to get down than we did up there.

The spinnaker is nothing too special for the locals of Portsmouth, but a great tourist attraction and something great for kids. Especially as they have the guts to run across the glass floor. If visiting Portsmouth then definitely visit spinnaker

Great views (but not 360 degrees unfortunately). 30 seconds in the lift up or down. No need to feel claustrophobic, the lifts are big and attended by a member of staff. Some- one on hand to tell you about the things you can see if you haven't bought an audio guide. Otherwise, plenty of display info. Ticket price lasts all... More

Great to see the surrounding areas including the navy base, Solent and Isle of Wight from above. Best seen on a clear sunny day.

We were so luck with the weather it was a perfect blue sky day. We booked late so we could guarantee a good view. It was quite expensive but a great place to see the whole Of Portsmouth and the Isle of White.
