Sea Life Summer Holidays

Discover Emirates Spinnaker Tower with your family this summer. The iconic harbourside landmark is open every day throughout the summer holidays, offering breath-taking views across the coast and activities for all ages.

This summer the Tower is celebrating all things under the sea! A special Sea Life trail will encourage youngsters to explore the building in search of letters to solve the mystery location of Oscar the Octopus and the Tower’s mischievous explorer, Vugo. On Saturday 4th and 18th August, meet Captain Barnacles and Kwazii from the hit Cbeebies show Octonauts! Appearance times at 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.

Opening summer 2018, Emirates Spinnaker Tower presents two thrilling new experiences. ‘Altitude’ is a sky-high virtual reality experience for those with a head for heights. ‘The Drop’ is a harnessed descent from the waterside landmark – feel the rush as you leap from a platform 25 metres above sea level!

Plus we’ll be joined by Portsmouth Football Club, a club at the very heart of its city, and Pompey in the Community, who provide so much support for the local community and is our local charity! Throughout the last weeks of August, Portsmouth Football Club players will be appearing at the Tower for ‘Meet & Greets’ and photo opportunities.
