The Old Steeple


Dundee’s oldest surviving building; standing since the 1490s, visit each floor of The Old Steeple (St Mary’s Tower) to see what curiosities lie within her walls.

As we will be climbing to the very top of the tower this tour is not suitable for children under 8, or those with restricted mobility. We do stop at every room on the way up so you don’t need to be super fit to climb the tower, if you can climb a couple of flights of stairs – you can make it.

Tour runs on Saturdays at 12.30 pm, from September to November. Private group tours are available on request – contact us for more information. See below for more details.


Tour is suitable for most ages and walking abilities but please be aware there are many stairs to climb both with and without handrails.

The tour lasts for approximately 1hr 15min, and will run regardless of the weather. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. See our full terms and conditions for more information.

Start point: The Old Steeple (St Mary’s Tower), Overgate

Accessibility info: There are over 150 stairs, and the top of the tower is very narrow and steep. If you have any questions about accessibility then please get in touch with us.
