Take in breath-taking views of the city skyline from the Spinnaker Tower and learn about life below deck on the HMS Alliance and hop on a waterbus to the Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower.  

For a unique culinary and cultural experience, visit Pie & Vinyl for delicious pies and an extensive vinyl collection. Finish your day at Gunwharf Quays, a chic designer outlet on the waterfront with discounted shopping for all your needs.
