Although we went up the tower over 10 years ago, we decided on impulse to do it again. And so pleased we did as you can now go higher. It was a sunny day and there are amazing views even to the Isle Of Wight....More

The views from the top are fantastic. The staff were friendly. That glass floor though. Realistically I know it’s safe to walk on but unfortunately my brain couldn’t quite make my body believe it.More

The lift only goes up as far as the cafe so if you want to go to the open air level at the top you have to take the stairs. Also be aware that to stand on the glass floor you must remove your shoes & there is nowhere to sit... More
