Taller than the London Eye at a sky-kissing 170 metres, the Spinnaker Tower stands proudly over Portsmouth Harbour, elegantly-shaped with an architectural nod to the spinnaker sail of its namesake, and offering a 350° panoramic view of the city. Each year the Tower offers a range of Festive themed experiences for customers to enjoy.
