The imposing Victoria Tower on Castle Hill overlooks Huddersfield and was built just before 1900 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign. The tower stands 900ft above sea level and can be seen from miles around. it stands on an old Stone and Iron Age site. Inside the tower is an exhibition which holds the history for the last 4,000 years. The name Castle Hill comes from when the De Laci family built a Norman castle on the hill.

Getting there...

Castle Hill, Almondbury, Huddersfield. Call 01484 223830 for opening times.

The Lowdown...
There are 165 steps in the tower, but the view from it is well worth the climb. Anyone who travels to the top because they know there's a pub up there will find it has been demolished.
