I have just completed a 94m abseil down the Spinnaker Tower for charity. I would like to say that the guys that have to deal with me were amazing, they made me feel extremely safe and gave me so much confidence. Even though it was quite scary with the wind blowing and my legs turning to jelly, I wouldn't have... More

Can thoroughly recommend that if you come to the Spinnaker Tower you take the new guided tour, which I think runs twice a day.

Don't hesitate, go for... More

We were lucky to have stunning weather on a recent visit to Portsmouth so we were thrilled to be able to make the most of it and visit the iconic Spinnaker Tower. We thought it good value (adult tickets being around the £10 quid mark) and it wasn't so packed you were in like sardines either. The staff were all... More

Definitely the most iconic venue in Portsmouth, if not the South Coast. With spectacular views of the city and across the Solent, you'd be silly not to brave the lift and give it a visit.

We visited Portsmouth yesterday for our first recall look around. Had a lovely day at Dell Quay and the Spinnaker. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable , particularly Shane who really seems to enjoy his job.
