As part of the National Lottery Open Week we are delighted to offer free entry to the historic Plymouth landmark, the Mount Batten Tower, on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th March from 11am until 3pm.

The Mount Batten peninsula, including the Tower and the [Mount Batten Watersports and Activities] Centre, is a key hub of the Plymouth Sound National Marine Park Horizon Project, and we’re delighted to welcome National Lottery players to enjoy the 360 views of Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, from the top of the Tower, find out more about its past as well as the history and heritage of the peninsula.

Entry to the Tower this weekend is free but there will be a donation station available for visitors – all contributions will be allocated to the Mount Batten Centre Charity Trust as custodians of the Mount Batten Tower.



Terms and Conditions of Mount Batten Tower open weekend as part of the National Lottery Open Weekend:

No pre-booking is required but there is a maximum number of 25 people allowed in the Mount Batten Tower at any one time – staff will ensure that any queue times are kept to a minimum.

Please be aware that if the weather turns VERY wet then we may have to halt access to the Mount Batten Tower on the grounds of safety.
