  • Good all round views of Oxford city. The clock has mechanical puppets which are animated and chime every hour. This feature isn't very common. Belgium and The Netherlands also possess these types of animated features on some of their Town Hall clocks.
  • A bit snug in places. Not for the fainthearted. Up and down the tower itself could be better arranged by staff. Pays your money then you're left to it. Lovely views.
  • One of the best place to sum up the whole of Oxfordshire from a birds view.. Beautiful Panorama of this culturally rich place... !
  • A great place to visit whilst in Oxford. It cost me £2.70 to go up. Well worth it. Great views across the whole city. The spiral stair case is a bit of a tight squeeze though.
  • Beautiful tower, captivating by the huge narrow stairs resembling native Torun. Getting to the top is rewarded with a beautiful view of the city from the bird's eye view. You can purchase guides in many languages on the tower.
