Beckfords Tower

Beckfords Tower & Museum

Beckford's Tower was built in 1827 for William Beckford, one of the nation's most accomplished and interesting characters. He used the Tower as a retreat, to study, to house his precious art collection and rare books and to enjoy the commanding view from the Tower's Belvedere.

The museum collection is a fascinating display of prints, pictures, architectural models, objects and furniture that illustrate William Beckford's life and interests both at Fonthill and Bath.
