The tower is 40 metres (131 ft) tall and has a capacity of 1.5 million litres (330,000 imp gal) of water. It is a Grade II listed building. The tower is a prominent landmark in Handbridge and can be seen from many parts of the city. It is a popular spot for walkers and cyclists, and there is a public footpath that leads to the base of the tower. The tower is also a popular location for photographers, as it offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside. In recent years, there have been a number of proposals for the future use of the Handbridge Water Tower. These have included converting it into a restaurant, a hotel, or a visitor attraction. However, as of 2023, the tower remains unused.
