Climb one of the UK's tallest buildings and Preston's highest point!
St. Walburge's Spire will be open to the public from the beginning of August for five weeks. 'The Spire in the Summer' will grant access to the Preston landmark each Saturday from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.
Shrine church of St. Walburge's is giving visitors the unique opportunity to ascend to its Spire which reaches a staggering height of 309 feet (94 metres).
The tower contains a single bell of 31 cwt (1.5 tonnes) cast by Mears and Stainbank of Whitechapel which is the heaviest swinging bell in Lancashire.
Children must be over the age of 8 or 110 cm to climb up with an adult.
Why not stroll over to our bar area afterwards where you can enjoy a nice relaxing drink, inside or outside (at socially-distanced tables of course!) from our fully stocked bar?
