Visited with wife on day out in Portsmouth, it looked like good fun and pretty cheap, 11 pounds per person for amazing view, very helpful staff, made experience even better, I will be coming again here!

Great facility, which I was not able to visit on previously living in the Southsea area. A great facility to view and go up, to check out the view and the view on a clear day was great.

This is a great experience. The views are tremendous with a lot of shipping to see in a busy harbour. The cost is not expensive and there are friendly and informative staff available to chat about local areas and the tower itself. The glass floor...More

I imagine this is the sort of place that would elicit different reviews depending on how crowded it was when you visited. We went up the tower on a weekday and apart from a school class visit there were very few folks around. This meant...More

The design is cool and very much in keeping with the Dockyard but, in my opinion, poor use of the rooms at the top. The tea room is okay, but the very top space is rather 'sad, with plastic flowers and five deckchairs and nothing...More

Very good ride up to the top by lift. The views are fabulous. There were some young ladies absailing down while we were there. Rather them than me!

We went to Portsmouth on June 25th, 2018. Small town, great restaurants and the view from the Spinnaker tower was awesome. We bought tickets on site at 6pm, no lines, no rush. We went up and were WOW with the view. The glass floor freaked...More

The gun-wharf key car park is literally next door, a 2 min walk and you could be all done in half an hour or choose to spend longer and go to the cafe for a coffee whilst you are there and spend as much time as you like on... More

The lift only goes up as far as the cafe so if you want to go to the open air level at the top you have to take the stairs. Also be aware that to stand on the glass floor you must remove your shoes & there is nowhere to sit... More
