  • Very friendly and helpful staff at the front desk. The staff at the top here very chatty and friendly. At the time my daughter was in a wheelchair and they were so nice and helpful. Great experience. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you
  • Amazing views from the top and If you are feeling brave they now offer a 'Drop' from the bottom section of the tower which look quite fun. They also have a lovely restaurant in the base of the tower also
