Travel independently to the Emirates Spinnaker Tower at Portsmouth harbor, and ride the high-speed elevator to the viewing decks of the 557-foot (170-meter) tower. Your ticket is valid for one day, so you can return to the Spinnaker as many times as you wish on the day of your visit.

Arrive at View Deck 1and admire the 350-degree views over the harbor, River Solent, English Channel and coastline through the full-height windows. As you gaze out, learn about Portsmouth and the landmarks using the i-VIEW touchscreens and audio guides, available in multiple languages. Then, venture across the glass Sky Walk. Step onto the glass and see the waves far below – if you dare!

Next, ascend to the Café in the Clouds, set 344 feet (105 metres) up. Relax here as you absorb the vistas before heading for the highest view point, the 360-feet (110-meter) high, open-air Sky Deck. Feel the wind whip your hair as you ogle the long-distance views and use the Talking Telescopes (additional cost) to scan the horizons.

Back at ground level, perhaps pick up souvenirs (own expense) at the gift shop, visit the tower’s Waterfront Café or explore the outlets at  nearby Gunwharf Quays mall.

Very quick services

Staff helpful and knew what they were doing. A bonus. And we did have have to wait too long before we were going up in the life to the first level.
