Would you like to see inside Jumbo? Would you like to see Colchester from the viewpoint of a peregrine falcon? For a limited time, North Essex Heritage is offering tours of Jumbo, so grab the chance to climb the 157 steps to the water tank and the cupola at the very top!
Proceeds from the ticket sales are supporting efforts to restore the water tower so that everyone can enjoy this Victorian icon in the heart of Colchester.
Built in 1882-3 and 105 ft (32 m) high, the top of Jumbo is reached by a metal spiral staircase of 157 steps. Sensible footwear required and gloves advised. Unfortunately there is no disabled access.
