St. Leonards Tower

Free Entry

This amazing 13th century survivor in the middle of town is available to visit thanks to the hard work of our volunteers.

The open season usually runs from mid-May to September every Wednesday between 10am – 1pm.

It is also open on some Saturdays, usually when there is an event on in the town centre.

Each year opening of the Tower is announced on Facebook, where current dates are kept pinned to the top of the page throughout the season.

Due to the nature of this ancient building, there is no wheelchair access to the upper floors. The steps are steep and access to the upper floor is at your own risk
