The Lookout Tower

Climb to the top of the tower for breathtaking views over the harbour, docks and estuary.

The Look Out is a ‘must see’ for all visitors.

  • Use computer interactives to call up more information about what you can see
  • Find out about historic buildings, local landmarks, coastal features, and special events and vessels in the harbour
  • Look north across the water toward the village of Flushing, former home of Packet Ship captains, or inland to the west and Custom House Quay where the customs used to land contraband goods seized from ships.

There are binoculars and telescopes for you to use, and a?series of maps so you can build up the history of the harbour and its surroundings.
