Summary of the attraction: 

The iconic Spinnaker Tower stands at a soaring 170 metres tall, offering awe-inspiring 23-mile views over Portsmouth, the Solent, the South Downs and the Isle of Wight.

The experience starts in the high-speed lift and in 30 seconds you step onto the viewing decks where Portsmouth, ‘the great waterfront city’ is showcased in all its glory.

These are unmissable sights, seen from a 350-degree panorama, and each sight with its own story. Discover the rich history behind the view with informative touch screen displays and take in the sea air from the open ‘Sky Garden’.

For those brave enough, there’s a thrilling ‘Sky Walk’, 100 metres above sea level or the opportunity to abseil down the Tower!

Right on the waterfront, The Spinnaker Bar & Kitchen is a relaxing spot to enjoy a drink or bite to eat made with locally sourced ingredients. For a real ‘high’ tea, head to the Clouds Café for a traditional afternoon tea or brunch with a glass of bubbly.

From 8pm the Clouds turns into Sky Bar – the perfect setting to drink in the view. Enjoy sunset, evening and night views while sipping a classic cocktail or our signature ‘Spinnaker Tower’.
