The spinnaker tower is something else, can see this for miles, stunning views from the viewing play form and from the garden room, after climbing the step you the come back down to the restaurant to a refreshing coffee and something to eat, in the evening there is stunning views when the tower is lit up and you might get a see a light show, if you feel daring enough you can even absail down the side of the tower.

Booked the tickets online beforehand, no waiting around in a queue and was at the observation level within a few minutes. The weather was crystal clear so had fantastic views of the area. Cafeteria available for refreshments and gift shop for memorabilia. Great visit.

Excellant experience.Clear day so good views.I was slightly annoyed as if I had booked at Spinnaker tower I could have had 25% NHS discount!

Fantastic trip to Portsmouth and the stunning Isle of Wight aboard the Wight Victoris ferry which is pure luxury. Highly recommended!

Exceeded expectations - the view is more magnificent than you can possibly imagine from the quayside
