I visited the Spinnaker Tower for the first time on Saturday having admired the building from below many times. It's a stunning structure and I enjoy seeing it in the distance from miles away as well as up close. On Saturday, I had signed up to abseil down the Tower for charity and decided that afterwards I would finally go up the tower to enjoy the views properly. The staff at the tower were all lovely, helpful and friendly. I was able to pay for my ticket using Tesco Club card vouchers which is great. You're taken to have your photo taken when you first go in and you can purchase it later with a background put in for £8. A little pricey but a nice memento. You are taken straight to the lift and although packed in tight, it's a fast ride so not unpleasant. You come out at the first viewing level and are welcomed by the amazing views. Portsmouth harbour is always interesting and I could have stayed up there for ages. Maybe a bench or two to sit on would be nice but there's always the cafe on the next floor up if you want to sit. The glass floor is fab. My young children really enjoyed it once they got their confidence and realised they wouldn't fall through it! I enjoyed it too. There were the people abseiling to watch too which was fun to see and that happens fairly frequently. It was a beautiful day on Saturday and we could see for miles. We had a nice refresher in the cafe on the second floor and the open air third floor was a slightly different experience again. I am so glad I finally made the trip up the tower and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. We spent a relaxing couple of hours up there and enjoyed every minute.
