Spinnaker Tower Portsmouth – Family Days Out

I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive about this little trip.

I had looked online about things to do with the kids in Portsmouth and the surrounding area so that we had something in mind for our little two day stop off before we headed to Our Isle Of Wight trip.

I came up with The Spinnaker Tower I thought the kids would love to see the view and what great photos it would make. But just looking at the pictures made me feel a little queasy I’m not great with heights.

But I booked it anyway

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.

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 icecream 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 and 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.
