We thought it was quite overpriced for the experience. However, there are a few interactive bits for kids. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Very simple access & well priced. Excellent views over a virtual 360 degrees but looks into the sun so when weather is best for viewing it limits photography. Quite small viewing area could get crowded.

The Shard of Portsmouth? Here's some pictures of the sunset for the staff member who mentioned she didn't get an opportunity to get a picture - it was pretty stunning. All of the staff were really lovely and helpful.
