When is the best time to visit?

That’s easy: first thing in the morning. 
That’s when the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions are at their quietest and the rooftop views are at their most impressive. Plus, you can map out the rest of your day from the top
of the tower. 

Give yourself at least two hours for your visit. You’ll need it.  

Attraction opening times

Our World of Illusions is open all day, and well into the evening. Take as long as you like exploring every curious corner. 

The last Camera Obscura Show of the day starts 30 minutes before sunset. Be quick – it can sell out well in advance. If you’d like to see it, arrive early. We’ll confirm your showtime when you buy your ticket.
