  • Great view and full of history. I really enjoyed learning how it used to have a shutter telegraph.
  • Arrrghhh... Sometimes the Clock Tower is open and you can climb the stairs to the top for £1. It's terrifying. Very vertiginous. I got up about 5 steps then had to go back down and leave the children to carry on to the top by themselves. 'What's the worst thing that could happen?' I thought, the sensible one was nearly 7 years old then after all and more than capable of looking after the other 3 (or was it 4?). Off they went, running gaily up the 93, steep and narrow stone steps, undoubtedly to see who could reach the top of the tower first and then who could lean furthest over the edge. Competitive. Anyway, the lady who sold the tickets was nice and offered me my £1 back, which I declined, I went across to the nearby tremendous pub: The Boot, to calm my nerves for a few hours. I completely forgot about the children. They're probably still up there.
  • l visited The Clock House Tower, yesterday it dates back to 1403. l found it most interesting, but watch the 94 very narrow steps to the top.
  • This fantastic old tower is one St Albans major landmarks. It is a steep and narrow climb to the top but well worth it for the sights you can see at the top. It is more difficult descending the steps so take care.
  • Thrilled by the experience. It has a very narrow stairwell consisting of 93 steps. The view from the top is really beautiful.
