This attraction is number one of the most enjoyable experiences of a visit to this magnificent building for young and old alike, our tower ticket never fails to astound and impress any visitor from all parts of the world. The single, massive Vestey Tower, named after its benefactors, the Vestey family, replaced the original twin-tower concept for the cathedral after going through several design alterations. This main roof section is 101m (331ft) above ground floor level and over 150m (500ft) above sea level and offers the most stunning panoramic views across the city as it spreads like a giant jigsaw of buildings, roads, parks and other landmarks.
Open to the public most days, it is accessible by 2 consecutive lifts followed by 108 stairs. Please note, there is no wheelchair access up to the Tower due to lift size but we do have a live television screen at the bottom of the Tower which is accessible and still gives you great views across the city!
