The Spinnaker Tower

The Spinnaker Tower

The Spinnaker Tower was originally called the Portsmouth Millennium Tower, but due to cost and time overruns it wasnʼt completed until 2005, making the original name somewhat irrelevant.

In fact, at the time of writing, 2009, it still isnʼt completely finished as they havenʼt yet managed to get the external glass lift working.

The single internal lift therefore has to double up and can get unpleasantly crowded in busy times.

Is it worth the wait and the crush? Definitely. The views are magnificent, and the glass floor is fun.

For opening times, admission prices, etc. please see the official site listed below.
