Add Rossall Tower to your Itinerary

Rossall Tower
The observation tower is open to the public so that they can learn about the coastal environment, bird life and plant life or just enjoy the view. The ground floor gallery has information about the local area and seasonal displays.

There are two observation decks for bird watching and taking in the views over the beach to the Irish Sea and across Morecambe Bay to the Lakeland fells and the Forest of Bowland. Anyone who cannot make it to the top deck will be able to enjoy the view through a screen at ground floor level . The tower has been designed to look as though it is leaning into the wind and rises 42 feet above the sand dunes.

A specially commissioned artwork 'Drift' features throughout the building and is made up of a series of individually designed pieces fashioned from natural materials and textures inspired by the natural patterns from the coastal environment. Rossall Point Tower was commissioned by Wyre Council with funding through the Sea Change programme. The tower is operated by Wyre Council and manned by Wyre Volunteer Rangers who run events and provide information about the local coastal environment.
