The Easter hols are upon us! Take the boredom out of the next few weeks and get out there!
The Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth
At an impressive 170 metres above Portsmouth Harbour and the Solent, the Spinnaker Tower is taller than the London Eye, Blackpool Tower and Big Ben.
The Tower stands proud over one of the most fascinating seascapes in the world. Situated on the waterfront at Gunwharf Quays, it offers amazing 350º panoramic views of Portsmouth Harbour, the South coast and the Isle of Wight, with views stretching out for up to 23 miles – breathtaking by day and a glittering sea of lights by night.

Surrounded by 100-acres of open fields and natural
woodland, our cliff-top site overlooks the sandy beach at Whitecliff Bay. A campus-style centre with boundary fencing and security gates, access to the beach is always supervised and our guests sleep in 4-12 bed dorms, with optional en-suites.
The Mary Rose is a Tudor ship, built in 1510. In service for 34 years. Sank in 1545. Discovered in 1971. Raised in 1982. Now in the final stages of conservation, she takes her place in a stunning and unique museum.
After years of planning, fundraising and building, the new museum opened to the public on the 31st May 2013. Packed with fascinating artefacts and plenty to enjoy, the museum is a wonderful day out for all the family. If you want a taste of pure English history then this is the place to be.
Once inside the museum, it takes between 90 to 120 minutes to go round, but you can take as long as you like. Please be aware that during school holidays we will be very busy, so expect some queues.
