Emley Moor mast is a great place to take someone if they are passing by, It has amazing views and is a nice place to take photos. There is also a very nice restaurant very close called The Three Acres Inn.

Visited with my enquisitive 7yr old who could not believe it was taller than Eiffel Tower. The views are just so amazing and would highly recommend just visiting or driving past. We've all seen it from afar but nothing beats seeing Emley up close.

A ride up to this iconic landmark is well worth the trip. The views are wonderful, and often in summer there is an ice cream van in the layby, where you have to park. This mast perhaps doesn't mean much to people who aren;t from...More
