  • The picture pretty well sums up this feature which was built about 1420. It is in excellent condition so one must assume it has undergone substantial refurbishment.  more »
  • If you have nothing else to do in St-Albans, just enjoy great views form the Clock Tower. Nice little attraction right in the city centre.  more »
  • Well worth a visit as you have fabulous views of the town and the surrounding countryside. Not open all the time but check openings before you visit.  more »

  • First day of the year that was open, the tower was very popular! Lovely view and such a lovely staff.
  • An awesome experience and great view of the town! Be warned that the stairwell is tiny and not ideal for tall people. The staff are lovely!
  • 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.
  • Great view and full of history. I really enjoyed learning how it used to have a shutter telegraph.
  • Very inexpensive, great piece of local history. Outstanding views at the very top.
