Tower visits

The 150ft tower of the Royal Victoria Chapel is a historic landmark that has stood over Southampton Water since 1856. It offers breath-taking panoramic views across Royal Victoria Country Park, the Solent and beyond.

Now, following a major conservation project, you can climb the 109 steps to the top of the Tower and marvel at the spectacular views.

Thanks to the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, Hampshire County Council have completed a major conservation and restoration project which has seen the Royal Victoria Chapel returned to its Victorian splendour.

All income generated through Tower Visits support the running costs of the Royal Victoria Chapel.
