The Tower is a short walk from the main complex - shop, parking area and cafe - but is worth visiting. Admission tickets are purchased at the base of the tower and as usual, there are spiral stairs to climb. However, there are a number...More

We spent an educational hour and a half at the Tower walking around the exhibits reading all the display material. The view from the top of the Tower was really worth walking the steps. We were disappointed not to be able to visit the bunker...More

Despite the lack of a view due to mist the tower was still of interest and worth the visit. The staff were warm and friendly- a real pleasure to visit. The cafe was warm, cakes were lovely and all round very much worth the visit....More

We visited on a beautiful, warm, sunny autumn morning which was perfect for taking in the stunning views of 16 counties across England and Wales from the top of the tower. Each floor of the tower is dedicated to the history of the tower and...More

It's a Victorian Folly, a fake castle with lots of real ones around. Don't bother if you're just going to drive there. A good cardio workout if you're coming up from town.

Visited here with my husband before our drive home after a weekend away. Didn't expect to stay long but the bunker was open so we booked both the tower and bunker tour. The tower is amazing and the information on each floor is thoughtfully presented...More

Is quite a small place . I think 30 min will be more than enough with the parking and visiting. For the parking you have to pay a charge but you can park on the road for free. The ticket to visit the tower is 5£.
