An experience not to be missed

The ride up in the lift is very smooth, there's no sensation of speed. The views are spectacular. Well worth the entrance fee.

We came here as part of a 50th birthday celebration. Good to book online as you get a discounted price and join a shorter queue. Also we didn't realise but if you have a ticket you can go up the tower as much as you like all day! It was great weather which meant you could see a long way... More

Well worth going up the tower for the best view of true Portsmouth. Best to go when not too sunny so we were told because of the glare off the windows. Staff very pleasant and helpful.

We had a wonderful guided tour of the spinnaker tower on Saturday given by the very knowledgable Allan He gave us the history and facts on how the tower came from an idea to finished construction, lots of details on the engineering and design problems that were encountered in the process. We learned so much more than we would have... More

This was a birthday gift and made a memorable day out. The weather was cloudy, but clear and we sat for nearly 2 hours watching ferries going to and from the Isle of Wight whilst eating freshly made sandwiches, tiny patisseries and scones and cream. A bottle of Prosecco added to the occasion and we were offered unlimited tea and... More
