We went up and within 15-20 minutes we were done. So I don't feel like the full ticket price was worth it. The ticket lets you get... More

We were very lucky to visit on a very clear sunny day. Staff were very friendly and informative and answered any questions we had. Stunning views and so much to see.

Visited with Basingstoke Probus Club. Very good but a shame a person unable to climb 30 stairs could not go to the very top. Well worth a visit though.

Lift to the top with easy, staff on hand to answer any questions Tom, Shane really good guides. Glass floor awesome for those not with a faint heart, the kids have no fear.... cafe and open air viewing up stairs but worth the steps to get up.

We were lucky to have a very clear day and so the views were superb. We enjoyed a very nice coffee in the cafe watch the world go by like little ants. A must.

Obviously not so good on a cloudy day but they did say that if you can't see the 3 forts then you get a free re-entry.
