We did it more then once in recent years and it is always fun. The stair climb is rewarded with the grand area view. The tickets are $6.

It is a very nice driv to get here, so that's a plus. There are nice views from the top of the tower. You can walk some good hills but bring ur hiking boots it gets pretty steep. The tour igood I would recommend it.

We went here for the first time this summer. Absolutely beautiful...you can see all of Bucks County. The elevator wasn't working when we went, but my mom did okay. Just be aware of that or call ahead if you have someone who can't walk all...More

My trip to Bowman's Hill Tower was breathtaking...and not just because of the staircase to get to the top! This attraction is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area. From the main road, I followed a narrow, steep road to the top...More

Nice short detour along the way from Washington’s Crossing State Park to New Hope. Great views from the top of the tower. The elevator is out, but there aren’t that many steps to climb. Informative staff provided information about the tower hours and future sunset...More
