We did enjoy our trip up the tower but I was expecting a little more. The cabin is not air conditioned to becomes very hot and full of condensation after only a few mins. This makes the viewing very difficult. All in all ok but not great

Had to queue for ages. They try to get you to have a photo - which delays boarding - but didn't push it when we declined. Trip itself is around 15 mins so very short, but good views.

This is a great place to get views around Weymouth and the surrounding area. The capsule offers clear views out of the window as there is only one row of seating. Good photo opportunities as it spins around twice each time, plan your visit as it can get busy we were in the queue for about 30 mins and then... More

Visited sealife and so got tickets for the tower included in the price. Seemed to be a bit of confusion about the queuing system, whether you have tickets or not you still need to queue to book your 'flight' however the attendants would tell people who had tickets to go to the front of the queue and book in much...

We went as we had the combined Sea Life/Tower ticket. High season there was a 20-30 minute queue, so not bad, but would have been reluctant to queue much longer. Staff friendly and helpful. It is a great experience, but only lasts ten minutes - the views are extraordinary - glad we did it but its not 'WOW'.

Just returned from Weymouth, having experienced the tower when it first opened didn't want to do it again. Would recommend to those that haven't - do it once.

Once up top and settled I was fine. For a brief moment on the journey up I felt my stomach turn and considered I may even soil myself, which wouldn't have set anyone in our group up for a nice day at the beach on what was the hottest day of the year, but the feeling passed. The admission fee... More
