A very pleasant and pretty walk up to the top of the hills, culminating in a brisk climb up the tower. Once at the top, on a clear day, the views are lovely, all round 360 degrees. Good car parking facilities take the stress out...More

I went to take a picture of London. View amazing. Tea and sandwich from the shop not nice! Not even sure if it was edible.

Lovely walk up from the car park. Super views from the top of the tower. Little server cafe serves a selection of cakes and tea in real mugs to enjoy the wonderful views from wooden benches.
