  • Interesting place to visit but expect a lot of walking around. You can climb to the top of the wheel for some brilliant views but it is via a single spiral staircase which winds around the tower so not for those who have a dislike of heights
  • A huge industrial landmark, the wheel towers over Lacey. A fifteen minute walk from the Electric Train station brings you to the wheel.

For UK National Trust members admission is free.
