By accident we happened to be passing on the weekend the new Beacon opened, it was a lovely sunny day so joined the short queues wanting to visit the top. From the road I did think that it seemed a waste of money, short and stumpy, but from the top, the height is good enough to see the surrounding areas. Although the viewing balcony doesn't go right round the top, you can still see 360deg. Not all the shops were occupied as yet and we haven't visited the cafe at the bottom yet, although it looks OK (we had actually just eaten in the new Tuned In cafe opposite the leisure centre which is excellent value for money and the food is good) On the whole, I think its worth it and I live in the area!
