Unfortunately the tower was closed when we got there, but the location did give great views over the area. It was a climb to get there, but well worth the effort.

We spent a very interesting hour in the tower looking around the island with the Camera Obscura and being told tales of the islands past and present. Loved it!

We were roaming around St Mary's on a day trip from Cornwall. Nice tower, great views and walking distance from the center of Hugh Town.

A visit to Mr Obscura never fails to be entertaining. What more could you want; interesting physics, a stationary tour around St Mary's, good banter and a cornucopia of odd objects! A must see when visiting the island

My mum suggested we should visit. Walked the steep hill to get there. Realised it was cash only. Borrowed from our ten year old boy after a brief discussion of financial benefit. It was a turn out of the ordinary. A combination of history and quirky personality to while away an hour or so. Whole hearted effort representing his hobby and passion. Well worth the time and money for a unique experience.
