It's time to do something new

It starts with a room with a view

Our year long activities make joining in the action even easier. You won't be able to miss a spot of window watching. Climb all the way up to the Great Tower roof and gaze out on the countryside below. The seasonal view bursts into a life of its own. Let it all sink in.
