Experience the South Coast’s most spectacular view at Emirates Spinnaker Tower - the stunning 170 metre tall icon on the South Coast.

Discover the famous personalities of Portsmouth’s past with the animated film show.

Explore one of the most fascinating sea and landscapes, spanning 23 miles and over 1700 years of history with the i-VIEW interactive touch screens – including Nelson’s Victory and the famous Mary Rose wreck site. 

Venture across the amazing glass Sky Walk, with virtually nothing between you and the waves below – dare you walk on air?! Then head up to highest level and relax in the Sky Garden - open to the elements and the energising sea breeze, it’s a real hair raising experience! 

Relax with coffee & cake and the breathtaking views at The Clouds, 105 metres above the harbour or tuck into a delicious lunch at the Waterfront Café.  A wide selection of gifts and souvenirs are available in our shop.
