Interesting take on the town and surrounding countryside but the low glass panels and slight overhang are not for anyone with a vertigo problem - some high points are OK, but not this one.

We went up the tower on a clear day we could see a long way. The lady could tell a great deal about the things we could see. We all took some good photographs.

Lovely sunny day when we visited which meant we could see for miles in all directions. A lift takes you to top and you are accompanied by a member of staff. Well worth a visit on a clear day.

A superb experience awaits you when you make your way up this relatively new addition to Stratford. Just make sure you go on a clear day and take in the view!

We thought we’d check out the tower while we were in Stratford and weren’t disappointed. The views were great, you can stay up as long as you like and the guides are so informative and ready to answer any questions from guests.
