Unlike the i360 tower in Brighton with its uninteresting views , the Spinnaker Tower offers great views over to the Isle Of Wight Southsea , Hayling Island and the Portsmouth Naval dockyard .

A lovely visit after lockdown. All staff were so lovely and helpful. We had booked festive cream teas. Sandwiches and cakes were lovely. Nathan was very attentive. After, we went down to the viewing level. We spoke to Jade who had sooooooo much knowledge about the tower, Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. Was fab to listen! Views are stunning!!!!! Totally worth a visit!

You get a spectacular view of Portsmouth and the Solent from the top of this tower, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the views were out of this world, you can have your photo taken with the spinnaker tower logo, their is a gift shop, its all covid safe, my only criticism is I think it is expensive to go up to the top, but wow the views

Thank you for your lovely 5* review!! Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your visit - I shall pass all of your comments on to the rest of the team. However my apologies that you felt we were slighly expensive. Sadly due to COVID 19 restrictions we have had to restrict access to a couple of the levels to ensure the safety of our guests. Our Café in the Clouds (View Deck 2) is only available for pre booked High Teas only and our Sky Garden is only accessible via a staircase so unfortunately it would be very difficult to maintain social distancing. We do hope you visit us again soon!
