Soaring high above the glittering Portsmouth Harbour, proudly stands the Spinnaker Tower - a spectacular and elegant viewing tower at the heart of a city that has undergone a major transformation in the last few years and is fast becoming one of Britain's favourite waterfront destinations.

The Spinnaker Tower is the UK's tallest publicly accessible tower outside of London. At 170 metres tall and with unrivalled panoramic views of the area, it has already established itself as a national icon for Britain. Providing breath-taking 350 vistas of the South coast, the Solent and the Isle of Wight and with views stretching up to 23 miles away, the three floor-to-ceiling glass view decks offer visitors a unique view every time. Visitors step out from the high speed internal lift and can be greeted by everything from crisp sunny days and stunning sunsets to rolling clouds and majestic ships, from green hills to towering buildings, and from atmospheric layers of mist to storm sequences - they all make for a dramatic and uplifting experience. The Tower also boast Europe's largest glass floor, enabling intrepid visitors of all ages to virtually 'walk on air'!
