Visited during October half term. My son loved it as did I! It's been 11 years since I lasted visited & I wasn't disappointed. We also spent time walking around the country park & found sharks teeth on the beach.

Historic tower with a friendly teashop, local museum and art displays and the what must be one of the widest (and highest) views in Essex. Not wheelchair accessible and small children would need close supervision, but 8 year olds I went with loved it, we climbed the tower, ate the cake, found sharks teeth on the beach and walked out...

Great value as not only do you get the views but the tower is filled with art, crafts and artefacts. Absolutely fascinating. Also a very cute tea room

Table & chairs inside as well as out but must be able to climb circular stairs. Some of tables outside provided with wind breaks.... More

We visted Naze Tower as we were staying in the area. Interesting visitors centre and good place to pop in and have a cup of coffee. The actual tower had a small spiral staircase which I didn't fancy climbing on the day and you have to pay a small fee to climb it. Not a good climb if you have... More

We came here at the end of October it was a lovely sunny day, the cafe is tucked away at the bottom of the tower. It sells a wide range of food for its size and all is freshly made. We had a jacket potato, sandwich and some cakes. All were lovely a fresh and filling and at a decent... More

We drove here hoping to go for a walk along the beach but as it was raining we spent some time in the new visitor centre and walked round the area near the tower but did not walk up it as personally I thought it seemed expensive and perhaps they could allow people who buy food from their cafe free...

If you are a fossil hunter this is the place to search. We have been coming up here for years - it has become an at least an annual pilgrimage with the kids. The shore area beneath the tower is eroding fast, hence why search a variety of fossils can be found. We have found: Loads of sharks teeth -... More

We came to Walton on the Naze to visit the famous dinosaur tooth beach, but didn't know about the tower until we got here. Built in 1706, it's nice to see that an important historical building is being cared for by the local council. It costs £2.50 to go beyond the first two floors but all the proceeds go to... More
