Thrill seekers can book the ultimate Spinnaker Tower experience - a 328ft abseil down the side of this iconic building!
Thrill seekers can complete an abseil from a platform on the side of the Spinnaker Tower, enjoying breath-taking views of Portsmouth Harbour, the city and the Solent as they make their descent down this iconic building.
You will abseil 328 feet while helping to raise much needed funds to support our limbless veterans. All participants will receive a Blesma T-shirt, fundraising pack, and a meet and greet on the day of the event by the Blesma team.

- Descend 328 feet
- £200 fundraising target
- When? 19 Aug 2017
Blesma is one of the oldest military charities in the UK, having given lifelong support to amputees since World War I. Today, we help those who served in WWII as well as younger generations who have survived complex amputations in more recent conflict. Blesma doesn’t receive any government funding, so we are only able to honour our pledge to continue to be there for our limbless veterans because of our supporters.
- Are there any age or height restrictions?
The minimum age for abseilers is 18 years old. A maximum weight limit of 21.5 stone also applies.
- Will I need any training before I complete my abseil?
Yes, but it is all part of the experience on the day. You'll be given a safety briefing up on the view decks where you'll meet your guides. They'll give you tips and answer any questions you may have.
- What do I do on the day of my abseil?
Make your way to our reception desk to check in and full instructions will be given. Make sure you wear sensible shoes (no open toes, heels etc.) and wear non-restrictive clothing. Dress appropriately for the weather - it can be cold up there!
- Can I bring my camera with me on my abseil?
You will be unable to take your own camera with you during you actual abseil as you will need both hands to complete it! However, we will take a photo of you at the beginning of your abseil, which can be purchased from our shop at the base of Emirates Spinnaker Tower. We also offer Go Pro video recordings of your abseil. The Go Pro is placed on your helmet and captures your whole experience. We will then transfer all the footage to a USB which can be purchased. Videos and photos can be pre-booked when you book your abseil or purchased on the day.
