Very well organised. You’re taken straight to the top by lift and you suddenly get the breathtaking views. You can see the shape of the land, the housing in Southsea, the tiny boats coming in and out. You can see Gosport and the dockyard. Amazing!...More

It is hard to put it in words you just have to go and experience it for yourself. Stunning views. We were blessed to have the bad weather clear off while we were up in the tower. Gorgeous.

We were there in fabulous weather and under blue skies the views are amazing. We went early which was a mistake but the tickets last all day so we left and came back later. It opens at 10 which is when the school trips arrive.More
