Spinnaker tower

I'm supprised this hasn't already been discussed on here!
I went up it for the first time on Saturday evening - best time to go as there was no que. So up we went in the internal lift (seriously packed in I might add) up to the top. The view is amazing. Here are a few pics I took with my phone so the quality isn't great.
Notice on the third the plastic owl on the roof to stop birds sitting on it.

I went up the Spinnaker Tower last weekend, and definitely recommend it too.

The glass floor 100m up is a bit freaky!

John

PS Does anyone know if it's been BASE jumped yet?

What's the difference between a bad marksman and a constipated owl?
