The Opening of Beckford’s Tower Museum in Bath

If you are planning a trip to Bath during April for a well earned relaxing city break, you may well be staying in a luxury Bath bed and breakfast within the city for your accommodation; if you are, then you will be well placed to enjoy all the local historical culture and attractions.

One such place you should add to your itinerary is the Beckford’s Tower Museum in Bath, which opens on April 3. This unique 120 foot neo-classical tower was built for the wealthy William Beckford in 1827 as a study retreat. Beckford at the time was one of Britain’s most accomplished and intriguing characters. Today, the tower contains a museum which houses a unique collection of personal items and artefacts which illustrate his life and interests.

As a visitor, you will be able to climb up the stairs in the recently restored tower, taking you up to the Belvedere section which offers magnificent panoramic views over Bath and the surrounding countryside.

Beckford’s Tower Museum is open during weekends from 10.30 – 17.00, and admission ranges from £2.50 to £8.00. For more information, contact: 01225 422212 / 460705

This is just one of the historical Bath attractions which you can enjoy on holiday or whilst you take advantage of one of the spa breaks in Bath to enhance your stay in the UK’s number one spa destination.
