Just £6 per adult, we were lucky to have a clear day so visibility was good. A fast lift ride to the top and lots of information to show you where to look to see the many sights.

We visited on a beautiful clear day and could see for miles. The staff were friendly and helpful, but also left you to wander at your leisure.
