This distinctive tower sits on a fantastic blowy ridge high above the Dorset coast. You can climb the tower itself, though opening hours are yet to be fixed because of access problems; but even when closed it is still a stunning spot. The tower was erected to commemorate one Thomas Hardy – not the author who is so synonymous with Wessex, but Vice Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy, of "Kiss me, Hardy" fame – he was Flag-Captain on the HMS Victory. There are picnic spots all around the tower, a van selling hot drinks most days, and some memorable walks radiating off in all directions – the Jubilee Trail, which starts off the access road just below the monument, is one of the best.
