Portsmouth, England, Featuring the Spinnaker Tower

For those of you who don't know Portsmouth I recommend a visit, particularly to Gunwharf Quay where the Spinnaker Tower is located. As it's the tallest structure for miles, the views from the top are great.

The Spinnaker Tower with the new Gunwharf Quay development at its base.


Looking up from the base of the tower.


Looking down through the glass floor on the 1st floor observation deck (there are 3 observation deck levels)


A view of Gunwharf Quay (still under construction in this picture) from the tower with Portsmouth in the background


A view from the Spinnaker Tower to the entrance of Portsmouth Harbour. The Isle of Wight can be seen in the distance


Looking across Portsmouth's Historic dockyard from the Spinnaker Tower


Portsmouth's historic dockyard is home to a number of famous ships, most notably Admiral Nelson's HMS Victory

Here's a few more pics I've found. Sorry for the quality of some of them (taken on a mobile) and reflections from windows etc.

A view of Gunwhar Quay and the Spinakker Tower across Portsmouth Harbour




Not the greatest quality photo but I love that you can see the shadow of the tower.


The Isle of Wight Ferry leaving port


A cross channel ferry coming into port


The Isle of Wight Ferry below the tower


Apologies for my feet, but it gives a good impression of the glass walkway on the 1st floor observation deck.


A couple more shots of HMS Victory, Britains most famous historic ship.
