“Lots of steps but a breathtaking view”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have climbed this tower many times and some of the old excitement that I felt as a child came back as I clambered up increasingly steep ladders.

Popped up up to the hoe for a little stoll and decided to have a return up the lighthouse. Having been many times when i was a lot younger it seemed miles to go then, biut now quite a lovely climb to the top, so worth it for the veiw. a must for all agea as it is so interesting and the veiws fantastic. doesnt take long and is quite reasonably priced.

“Nice.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

It is interesting to go up Smeaton's Tower. A little bit of history for Lighthouse fans. Set on Plymouth Hoe.
