Family Days Out Portsmouth – Spinnaker Tower

Looking online for family days out Portsmouth before out trip we came up with the spinnaker tower.

I’ll be the first to admit that I was a little apprehensive about this little trip.

Family Days Out Portsmouth

We wanted an activity for our little two day stop off before we headed to our Isle Of Wight trip.

After seeing The Spinnaker Tower I thought the kids would love the experience. But just looking at the pictures made me feel a little queasy I’m not great with heights.

The checkout button was soon clicked and fears put to one side as i wrote the trip into our agenda.

On our way there you could see it towering above the city and again I felt a little nervous.

The kids were so excited and I thought I just have to go up.

Amazing Views of Portsmouth

We went through the entrance and into the lift. it took no time at all to get to the first floor as the doors opened I could see the view.

It was amazing. We continued through the doors and into View Deck 1 There are window all around but I felt completely at ease.

I even hopped (walked tentatively) on the glass floor where you you can peer down to the floor 100 metres below.

The kids thought it was great apart from Jessica. Mason however wouldn’t come off it.

Afterwards we headed up to the top floor via the stairs for an ice cream In the Sky Garden!

This experience is well worth the cost. We paid £35 for a family of 4 (under 4’s are free). Obviously food and drinks are extra. There is a chance to buy a souvenir photograph which we did for £10

So if your wanting to try something new or need to conquer your fear of heights why not give it a go.
