The Tower

Visiting the Tower

Our regular guided Tower Tours take place between March and October but tours may be booked at other dates/times by contact us via the link below.

Tours are conducted by Trust volunteers for which a small fee (Adults £5/Children free) is charged to go towards maintenance costs – these tours regularly raise over £2000 a year, a considerable contribution in the overall running of the Trust. 

The extensive restoration and repair work, was made possible thanks to the generous financial support and physical efforts of many volunteers, and a generous grant from the English Heritage Lottery Fund, the tower was opened to visitors in 2001.
