Spinnaker Tower

Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, PO1 3TT, United Kingdom | 02392857538 | Website

Venue Description

Experience the south coast’s most spectacular view. Spinnaker Tower stands at 170 metres tall, offering breath-taking 23 mile views over Portsmouth Harbour, the city, the Solent, the South Downs and the Isle of Wight. The iconic landmark boasts a high speed lift and three sky-high viewing decks. Venture across the thrilling glass ‘Sky Walk’ at 100 metres above sea level; discover stories behind the surrounding sites with informative touch screen displays; try vertigo-inducing virtual reality, breath in the view from the open air ‘Sky Garden’; relax in The Clouds with a coffee, a glass of bubbly or a decadent High Tea; and enjoy delicious meals made with locally sourced ingredients in the Waterfront Café. Thrill seekers can book on to one of the Tower’s popular 100 metre abseil days or, new for 2018, adrenaline experience ‘The Drop’. Spinnaker Tower also makes a stunning venue for private events, corporate functions and weddings.


We aim to enable as many visitors as possible to experience the stunning views that Spinnaker Tower has to offer. With access to our View Deck at 100 metres and to The Clouds at 105 metres via the internal lift, guided tours, informative guide books and other facilities, the experience of a visit to the South’s must-see attraction can be enjoyed by many. INFORMATION FOR VISITORS WITH MOBILITY IMPAIRMENTS Our view deck at 100 metres and The Clouds at 105 metres can be accessed by the internal lift. Unfortunately the Sky Deck (our highest view deck) is only accessible by stairs. In the unlikely event of the Tower being evacuated and the internal lift being unavailable, visitors would have to descend using our emergency staircase of 560 stairs. Due to fire and safety procedures, visitors with mobility impairments who can use the staircase with some assistance, may be admitted to the Tower a maximum of 2 visitors at any one time. Those visitors who could not use the staircase are limited to one visitor at any time. To facilitate their visit we have an Evac+Chair as well as a trained member of staff available. That visitor should be able to transfer themselves, or with the help of a carer, to the Evac+Chair and also not exceed 23 stone in weight. We recommend that all visitors with mobility impairments book in advance to avoid disappointment. For further information or to book your visit please call 023 9285 7520, option 3. Other Facilities: A hearing loop is available at reception Guided tours are available (pre booking essential) 3 disabled toilets on site
