A sky-high way to celebrate Peterborough Heritage Festival.

Tower Top Climbs
To mark the Heritage Festival, we are holding a day of special tower top climbs – every hour, on the hour. This will involve a straight climb up the steps of the north-west tower onto the central tower outside, for stunning views across the city.

Entry: £5 or £16 for a group of four. Ages 8+ only.
Bookings at the VIC.

Realistically, given steep and narrow spiral staircases, plus the odd medieval beam to negotiate, and the absence of hand rails in one section of the ascent, visitors need to have a certain level of stamina, fitness and a forgiveness for ancient buildings. Again, as part of the insurance undertakings, each person going up the tower are to read, agree and sign a short disclaimer. Without it they cannot take you up. Large rucksacks or bags are not allowed on tower tours. safe storage location is provided
