Spinnaker Tower 2021

About This Attraction

Experience the South Coast’s most spectacular view from this iconic 170-metre tall viewing tower.

Discover the stories and personalities that helped make Portsmouth the great waterfront city it is today – brought to life with a fun animated film show. Ascend to View Deck One, 100 metres above sea level, in the high-speed lift to experience the wow of the stunning panoramic view across the Solent, Isle of Wight and beyond, and explore the secrets of the most fascinating sea and landscape, with our interactive i-view interpretation screens.

Families will love venturing across the amazing glass Sky Walk and watching the boats bobbing about in the waves below their feet – if they’re feeling brave! Head up to the open-air Sky Garden to feel the energising sea breeze in your hair.

Tuck into lunch at Spinnaker Kitchen & Bar, with a selection of hot and cold meals and snacks for all the family. Alternatively, book a delicious High Tea in The Clouds (must be pre-booked).  Spinnaker Tower also hosts a number of great evening events and makes a stunning venue to hire for private functions and weddings.
