I have been to the climbing towers numerous times and always loved the facility. It appeals to expert climbers and absolute beginners. The instructors are very friendly and supportive and understand the needs of the group. This is a facility that needs to get used more often and be experienced by more people. Let's all share the love for a... More

The views are outstanding, enjoyed the experience of doing it. The glass floors and windows were a good tourist attraction and the... More

ive noticed in other reviews people are confusing THE tower with the rock climbing towers. The climbing towers are NEVER open of what ive seen, everytime ive drove past the shutters are down and the gates are locked?

Long queues to go in and then squashed into a small lift and long queues again to come back down. Good to go up for the views and experience but the very last level was closed.

This was great, well worth going. But buy your ticket in the Tourist board office, just opposit the Tower. It is only £9 there but in the Tower it is £12, so you save £3.

We just did the tower trip and it was well worth the money. Views were fantastic and we had beautiful weather too. Glass floor was awesome! 3D Theatre really enhanced the experience.

Hadn't been up the tower for 35 years. It was brilliant the whole experience starting with the history of the tower, followed by an amazing 4D film, the best I've ever seen. We then went in the lift and when the doors opened,WOW, the view was amazing with an unobstructed panaramic view. If you havent been to the Tower in... More
