    Birds eye views!
    You can walk or take the lift to the top of the tower. A volunteer will be present for the duration of your stay. The enclosed tower offers fabulous bird eye views of Stratford! No fee required although they will accept donations.

    FREE and friendly!
    FREE..and Friendly! We came across this when visiting the theatre. The friendly staff at the door guided us up to the top of the tower. It was worth it for the views. Then take a tour or just walk about the theatre and visit the free exhibition of clothing

    And it’s free to enter….
    The Tower presents the Birds Eye view of the entire area and the river. You can either walk up the stairs (not recommended) or take the lift. Having been fleeced to enter other places in the area this was refreshingly free.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Always wanted to do this - glad we did. Lift up and great view of Stratford from top. All enclosed for those who don’t like heights. Such an amazing building and so much dramatic history

We visited the tower and I have to say that both staff on duty, bottom and top were super friendly with great knowledge of the area.
The views from the top are stunning. There is a lift or stairs.

We were given a recommendation to come here by one of the other town attractions, and it did not disappoint. The view from the top is spectacular, and you are able to see Stratford in a different way. The member of staff that took us up in the lift was very friendly, and informative. We would high recommend the tower.

The tower is free to enter but suggests you make a donation. A member of staff takes you up and waits with you at the top. Great views on a clear day, you can see for miles.

On a cloudy windy day a lovely thing to do. The donation system is a good idea roughly £3 per person. 360 degree views and highly informative guides.

Nice to go up the tower and get views across the area. It was also nice to have a little wander around the Theatre and grab a coffee.
