Tower tours More adventurous visitors can climb the 218 steps for some of the finest views of the city and county of Herefordshire, and beyond. Tours include the Lantern Gallery and Ringing Chamber with a set of panoramic interpretation boards at the very top. Tours are limited to good weather and may not be suitable for all visitors. Children must be accompanied by an adult and we recommend that the climb is only suitable for children aged 8 or over. Certificates are issued to all who manage the climb to the top!
