Visitors will have a one-hour time slot, which allows plenty of time to get up and back down the Tower again, and also to spend time at the top to admire the views and take photos.

Visitors are asked to arrive in time to begin the ascent promptly, asked to wear suitable footwear and dress in warm clothes as it can be chilly an windy at the top.

There are three time slots to go up the tower, 10am, 11am, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.
