The Wish Tower Friends is a group of people, from Eastbourne and beyond, who want to encourage more people to visit and appreciate the Wish Tower Slopes.
We took over the tower, on a short term lease from Eastbourne Borough Council, with the following aims:
Since first taking over the lease, we have successfully cleared the tower of assorted junk and subsequently conducted tours for well over 2000 people. We’ve also staged more than a dozen other events. We’ve now completed historical and structural surveys which will form part of a plan to be presented to the Council and Historic England with the aim of raising more funds for its full restoration
