It’s quite dizzyingly tall. In retrospect, although it was very high on my hit-list of Things Which Must Be Done In Liverpool, it’s probably a good thing that we didn’t go up there on either of the previous days when the sun had been shining, but there had also been a gale blasting in off the river. I overheard one of the radio stations employees mention sea-sickness and I concluded, rightly or wrongly, that the nausea had been induced by the swaying of the tower in the wind.

My hit-list also included visiting one or both of the cities cathedrals, but we didn’t make time for that, so it was good to get reasonable views of them both from the tower.
