I wouldn't fancy going up there in the cold best to go on a nice clear summer day. - but then you might not get the fab night view as it doesn't go dark 'til late - probably after the tower tour has finished.
My cousin took that one, I took a few but was hiding in the corner .
I wanna do it again to see if it was the height that I didn't like. I'm sure it was coz of the wind, felt like I was gonna be carried off.
The fella that works there said it was closed on bonfire night so they could watch the fireworks from the best view in the city. Problem was, the smoke rose and they were left looking at the smog over the city
Great photo, never been there.
You even gone all Christmassy with your avatar.
You must have them like your clothes, depending on what mood you're in.

Some pics from the tower on friday,took about 70 well worth the £3.50 fee (pensioner)and the 108 steps,
It would be best on a clear day and a UV filter would be a help to cut through the haze

From earlier this week.... And was very lucky to have an extremely clear day!
First one views over Birkenhead, The Priory and over to the Mountains of Wales.
The second views include Blackpool Tower, the Big one, and in the distance you can make out the hills of the Lakes.
The third is a Mersey Panoramic.

Excellent as aways, GD. Are all these from one trip ?
Anyone know if the wind ever dies down up there ?
Deffo wanna do it again but not if it's gonna be windy all the time.
Great pictures guys. Clear shots there Joe. I'm getting my good camera out soon. I'll put me shots up, you can give me some hints and tips.
Thanks GD. Good shots. I like the way you added the road names.
Only a few more opportunities to visit the Anglican Cathedral Tower this year - finishes October 28th. Tickets £5 from the Cathedral. Thursday evenings only. Last visit half an hour before sunset
(6.30-ish at the moment)
It worth the climb up not just for the views but for the vertigo of looking down on the Liverpool Tardis
