It’s a long way from Norwich. Match report or something to follow.
Apart from one of those trademark Peter Crouch overhead bicycle kick goals whereby the photograph of him can be arranged as the hands of a clock, the game was mundane. After the early season euphoria, it’s business as usual for Pulis: ineluctably flat. To say he was one-dimensional would be to insult people who have a dimension.
Here, instead, is a picture of Portsmouth’s tourist attraction, a national Icon for Britain, apparently. It’s an Icon which is somehow 10˚ short of a full Panorama.
Soaring 170 metres above Portsmouth Harbour and the Solent, the Spinnaker Tower is taller than the London Eye, Blackpool Tower and Big Ben and has already established itself as a national icon for Britain.
A world class visitor attraction, the much-admired, elegant viewing 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.
View Deck 1 boasts Europe’s largest glass floor, where visitors of all ages can dare to ‘walk on air’! View Deck 2 has self-contained multimedia ‘Time Telescope’ stations showing the history of the harbour and View Deck 3 – The Crow’s Nest – is open to the elements, enabling visitors to feel the wind in their hair.
