“Another must see in St Albans”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My favourite story about the Clock Tower is that here a crowd were being roused to support the King against the roundheads, bad timing because coming up Holywell Hill, just around the corner was Oliver Cromwell and his army.

“Value for money”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very cheap to go up. Great views from the top and lots to interest on each floor as you ascend. Its right in the middle of town so worth spending an hour on.

“The thrill of the climb”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The clock tower is a gem. The kids love navigating their way up the twisting stairs, past the clock and the bells. Views are superb and best of all the kids love the 'chicken' on the top!
