Visit the Chapel tower

Tower visits

Climb the Chapel tower and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views across Royal Victoria Country Park, the Solent and beyond

A climb to the top of the 150ft Chapel tower is rewarded with breath-taking panoramic views across Southampton Water and the Solent to the Isle of Wight, the New Forest and the South Downs.  Look for the clues to the tower’s more functional past and ring the largest of the three Chapel bells!
