Fodor's Review

On the lively Gunwharf Quays development of shops and bars, the Spinnaker Tower adds a striking visual focus to Portsmouth's skyline. The slender structure evokes a mast with a billowing sail, and rises to a height of 558 feet. An elevator whisks you to three viewing platforms 330 feet high, for thrilling all-around views over the harbor and up to 23 miles beyond.
