Ages: all ages

Venue type: Indoor

Naze Tower is the only building of its kind in existence. The unique octagonal tower was built several hundred years ago and has had a number of uses over time.
Be prepared for a bit of a climb, as there are several floors but it is worth it to see the amazing views, especially from the viewing platform. The staircase is a bit tight and isn't suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and probably very small kids, unless you are happy to carry them up all the steps.
Most of the floors now make up an art gallery, which has three exhibitions per year of work by artists in East Anglia.
The museum section covers the history of the tower and information about the local geology and ecology, including the coastal erosion problem.
When you make it to the top of the tower (all 111 steps!), you will be rewarded with the stunning views to every point of the compass. On clear days, you can see up to an incredible 30 miles away.
Something a little different for you and the kids to experience.
