Spinnaker Tower information
Lonely Planet review
The Spinnaker Tower soars 170m above Gunwharf Quays – an unmistakable symbol of Portsmouth's new-found razzle-dazzle. Its two sweeping white arcs resemble a billowing sail from some angles, and a sharp skeletal ribcage from others.
It's one of the UK's tallest publicly accessible structures, offering 23-mile views over Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and the South Downs. Observation Deck 1 has a hair- raising view through the glass floor, while the roofless Crow's Nest on Deck 3 allows you to feel the wind on your face. Tickets are 15% cheaper when booked online.
