1. Spinnaker Tower
What is it? Modelled on a sail to reflect the city’s seafaring history, this landmark observation tower is two and a half times the size of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square – standing at 170 metres. Originally called the Portsmouth Millennium Tower, the Spinnaker Tower is the centrepiece of Portsmouth’s regeneration: the trio of panoramic decks offer spectacular views out to sea and across southern England.
