Spinnaker Tower

Take the lift up Spinnaker Tower to the viewing platform, soaring 170 metres (557 feet) into the sky above the historic harbour of Portsmouth, gateway to the English Channel. 

Take the high speed internal lift, or the panoramic lift* which runs up and down the outside of the building! Step out onto View Deck 1 and you step right into the best view in the country. On a clear day you can see for 23 miles or more.

Dare you “Walk on Air”? See if you dare cross the glass floor, the largest in Europe.

Go higher!  On View Deck 2 see the modern view or watch history unfold on the unique Time Telescopes, where you can catch Mary Rose or H.M.S. Victory sailing by.

Go higher!  Feel the wind in your hair on the “Crow’s Nest”. On the top deck, you are exposed to the elements.

Return safely to earth and enjoy the waterfront Tower Café/Bar.

 * Additional charges may be made for these facilities.
