Beckford's Tower and Museum is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

This spectacular landmark was built in the 1820s as a study retreat for William Beckford (1760-1844): writer, eccentric and one of the great British collectors.

It houses a unique collection of objects, paintings and furniture, commissioned and owned by William Beckford, through which visitors can explore his remarkable life. The 120-foot neo-classical tower, designed by Henry Edmund Goodridge, offers spectacular panoramic views of Bath and the surrounding countryside.
