Whilst travelling around the area the tower of the Emley Moor transmitting station is pretty hard to miss. Even at night, the run of red lights can be seen for miles. Not much to do when you get to it except stare in wonder and...More

Emley Moor mast is a great place to take someone if they are passing by, It has amazing views and is a nice place to take photos. There is also a very nice restaurant very close called The Three Acres Inn.

Visited with my enquisitive 7yr old who could not believe it was taller than Eiffel Tower. The views are just so amazing and would highly recommend just visiting or driving past. We've all seen it from afar but nothing beats seeing Emley up close.
