Semaphore Tower is a unique remnant from the Napoleonic era, the Grade II* listed brick structure is the only surviving semaphore tower in Britain. It was once a cutting-edge building at the forefront of technology and design, a vital link in a signalling chain that transmitted messages from Admiralty House in London to Portsmouth Docks in just a few minutes.
We are opening this building in association with Heritage Open Days. These free open days will be an opportunity to see inside our most recent Landmark restoration project and learn more about its history and restoration. Please pre-book your ticket via EventBrite.
Admission is free and information sheets will be provided detailing the building's history.
Please note: There is no parking at this building. You can park at nearby Wisley & Ockham Common car park: KT11 1NR.
*Semaphore Tower is a small building with a tight staircase so in order to keep visitors safe we will be limiting the number of people allowed in at one time; this could mean that if you arrive at a particularly busy time you may be asked to wait to gain entry.*
