Observation Deck · Tourist Spot
A curvaceous, billowing structure modeled after a sail to reflect Portsmouth’s history as a maritime town, Spinnaker Tower looms elegantly over the city’s harbor. Finished in 2005, the tower stands 170 m (560 ft) tall, and can be seen even from beyond the city limits. Take the elevator to one of the tower’s three observation decks and enjoy the view across Portsmouth and its surroundings.

  • 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 .  more »
  • Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. The staff at the top here very chatty and friendly. At the time my daughter was in a wheelchair and they were so nice and helpful. Great experience. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you
  • Amazing views from the top and If you are feeling brave they now offer a 'Drop' from the bottom section of the tower which look quite fun. They also have a lovely restaurant in the base of the tower also
