  • There are more stairs than you think. The stairwell is very narrow, so it’s good to go just before closing when it’s not too busy. The staff are very friendly and the views of the Thames, Tower Bridge...  more »
  • It was quite a trek up the 311 steps to the top but totally worth it for the views. Went at opening and only 2 other people there.  more »

  • Fantastic views 311 steps though so be prepared!!! At £5 entry it's far cheaper than many other London views. Please read the history of it and take a quick look around the local area. Don't miss a good look at the sculpture on top! Ball of golden flame.
  • The stairs up and down are quite narrow, especially near the top, so you will need to squeeze in a bit from time to time to let others pass. Went up with my 6 year-old, with no problems (coming down was actually worse than going up). There's no real space for a time-out half way up, and no seats for the elderly, but once at the top the views are great and no rush to get down. Amazing views of the City, Tower Bridge and Shard. Wouldn't rush back for £5, but worth it as a one-off.
