Fairly easy walk to the top (probably 150 steps) and lovely view of Tournai. Reasonably priced and just check opening times before visit, it closes for lunch etc

At only €2 you may as well take a look if passing. It was interesting to learn the history of this tower and belfries in general however all the information is in the first room and after that there is no more. This was disappointing...More

We were positively surprised at the belfry. Free entrance, small platforms breaking up the climb, a cool 360-balcony 2/3 up and another one at the top! Small play area for children - positively surprised!!

Yes, there would be no problem. You may just want to be aware that people need to take turns to let others pass when going up and down.
