Yup, it’s the University Tower once again, this time from up close. The shots from a distance don’t give much testament to its actual size.
Well, neither does this shot, but atleast it’s taken from the foot of the tower, as opposed to hundreds of meters away.
If you want a hands-on take on the actual size of the tower, you have to get to the top ledge to the sightseeing deck. (I don’t think it’s actually referred to as a sightseeing deck, but it’s the highest point where visitors can go, so I’ll keep calling it that until someone corrects me.)
You wanna get up to the top of the tower? Ooh, that’s a bit tricky. See, the tower was built to the safety standards of 1871, so there are very limited opportunities to get up there. I managed to get up to the top during Freshers’ Week, and I’m planning on getting up there again this Freshers’ Week (especially because I now have a better camera than a year ago.)
