Well worth a visit, lovely views, lots of useful maps explaining what you can see. The journey to the top was interesting, go up in a lift, then spiral staircase is not for the faint hearted, but worth it for views.

Bit windy when you reach the top but the views are superb and the lift makes the ascent very easy. Great picture opportunities too. Not to be missed (and, if my memory serves me correctly it was less than €3).

Great place for an overview of the city. Easy enough to access. Buy tickets at the tourist information centre, then take the lift up. Stunning views at the top with helpful information boards. Don't get caught out like we did...it's closed between 12-2pm.

This building is absolutely stunning in architecture, you can take in the underground tour and then take the lift to the top where you can take on the sights over the whole of Arras... Well worth a visit..!

The elevator and a spiral staircase with 43 steps lead to an outside walkway around the tower. Just under the clock, stunning views on the markets and the abbey. Entrance under the tourist office.

The view from the top is amazing and directs your eye to major battle grounds of WW1. Great perspective. Inside the belfry is quite interesting but if you can climb the steep stairs, it is well worth it.

Great view of the city, but the stairs (although not too strenuous) are not for the faint of heart. The spiral staircase is safe, but very uncomfortable if you are scared of heights. We got some great photos, and you can so a lot from...More
