Hotels near the Spinnaker Tower
The Spinnaker Tower rises 170 metres above Portsmouth Harbour and Gunwharf Quays. The cutting-edge landmark pierces the city's skyline, offering sensational views of the harbour, Solent coastline and the city itself.
Take the slow-rising panoramic lift or zoom up in the high-speed internal lift to the tower's three levels. View Deck 1 has the largest glass floor in Europe and sends hearts leaping into mouths as visitors peer down onto the city and harbour. View Deck 2 holds the Time Telescopes, through which the harbour's history cleverly unfolds, while The Crow's Nest, open to the elements at 360 feet, is only for the fearless.
