  • Tall tower (around 400 steps) with ornate stonework at top with good views. Staircase is a quite narrow but not tight spiral and has ledges at window openings where you can take a rest (some with small stone seats). Balcony at the top is quite spacious for most of the perimeter with space away from the edge. Only open a few days a year (bank holidays in spring and summer and Father's day this year). There are a couple of higher smaller levels that are out of bounds, one by a further staircase and the top coronet by ladder. The outside structure is attractively Illuminated at night.
  • Unusual building!
  • Amazing views of Halifax
