“Great views but very tight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Great views of the city cathedral and surrounding area but the stairs are steep and narrow. Great for older kids and agile adults. Don't go if you have vertigo or are a bit shaky on your feet.

“I used this as team building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

I was in St Albans on a team building exercise for my company. It was a great experience to get all of the team to the top of the building up a very narrow flight of steps. They gave each other encouragement, laughed all the way up and took great group photos at the top. From the top, the views of St Albans are stunning. It took about 30 minutes in all. I combined that with a treasure hunt through St Albans and picnic in the park. A great day out!

A great find & well worth walking up the narrow stairs to see across St Albans rooftops

Get a great view of the cathedral, old town hall & market

Exciting for kids & adults alike

“Great views all around St Albans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

This is a bargain for £1. You get one of the best views in St Albans. At the top of the tower you can look in all directions, you can spend plenty of time to look around and take plenty of photos. However if you are claustrophobic or suffer with vertigo this experience is not for you.

“A lovely view of St Albans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

We regularly go up the tower with the children. Always a friendly welcome, and often get to ring the bell! And you get a good view of the town from the top. Recommended.
