“Grandson's day out”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

My grandson loved going up to the top of the tower. We then had sandwiches sitting outside in the perfect weather. A very good experience overall.

“best view in essex”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

might seem a lot to pya £2.50 to climb a tower but it is worth it for the view and excellent descriptions. Art on the way up is a great idea with some very good value pieces. cafe pricey but fresh grub

“Unique experience”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Unique is a word often over-used. Not in this instance. An ancient tower with a rich history ontaining an art gallery and a cafe. How unusual is that? Extraordinary views from the top. Thought the entrance fee £2.50 per person was very reasonable, given the interesting things in it such as the artworks and sculpture, and the detailed history displays. Council car parking charges outside are steep, and rather unfair. Park elsewhere if you have the inclination to walk to the tower. Overall, a great experience.
