Spinnaker Tower Portsmouth UK

On my last day in Portsmouth, I purchased a ticket to the tower, which has great views of the harbour, historic dockyards, and city.

If I had it to do over, I would have gone up the tower first to get an overview of the area. Panels around the windows provide local information. There are also touch screens with more information.

I noticed some were reluctant to walk on a portion of one deck, which has a glass floor. But most enjoyed taking a picture looking straight down at the activities below.

Time of day matters as does sunshine. I went in the afternoon and experienced quite a glare making some views difficult.

Fees vary so check the website. When I went a ticket permitted returns during the same day.

I didn't find the introductory film of much interest.

Gifts are available and there is a restaurant with nice views of the harbour.
