I'm not a big fan of heights, so this was something I wanted to do but it was a challenge! The queue moved quickly so we didn't wait too long to get in. The lift was smooth and within no time we were at the first observation deck. As it was a beautiful sunny day we could see for miles.... More

Arrived to Portsmouth on a busy bank holiday. Booked on line which was cheaper. Certain areas need a good clean . Views ok but it was a very misty day,but still enjoyed it.

I did an abseil down the outside of the tower for charity. The experience was fantastic and very exillerating!! The staff were all really friendly and put me at ease throughout. Photos and a video were taken for purchase. Access to the viewing decks was available all day, included with the abseil. The views were sensational. I was extremely lucky... More

Slightly expensive for what you actually get which is a view. Some of the panoramic pictures to help you recognise what you are looking at are way out of time and need updating.

Used tesco vouchers to go here...if I had had paid full price I think I may have whinged a bit! The tower staff were really good and made us feel welcomed despite it being quite busy. The glass floor was good fun for the kids and nice views. We didn't make use of the free anytime during the day return... More

Visited midweek, looks impressive from outside, however in our opinion its a bit overpriced. £33 for a family ticket, great views but not much else for your money.

A novel experience and we were given a scratch card at the entrance which gave us a further 15% off the already reasonably priced entrance fee.
