Tower Tours

The best view in Gloucestershire

We hope to resume our guided tours sometime in Spring 2022. Keep an eye on our website and social media for latest updates.

When you get to the top of the winding medieval spiral staircase enjoy a breathtaking view from the top of the tower - on a clear day you can see forty miles across the glorious Gloucestershire countryside to the Malvern Hills.

On the way up you'll visit the ringing chamber and the bell chamber where you’ll see ‘Great Peter’ the only medieval bell of its size still in use in England. 

Tours last around 60 minutes.

Please note:

  • There is no facility to leave bags, so visitors must keep their belongings to a minimum and on their person at all times.
  • Sensible footwear is highly recommended. 
  • Children must be 6 and over to climb the tower
  • Any chilld 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult over 18   


Private Tower Tours

A private tower tour is a unique way to celebrate a special occasion or as a corporate outing. Do you fancy enjoying champagne on the roof proposing to your other half as the sun sets? 

Private tower tours are available all year round, dependant on weather and availability. We can put a bespoke package together for you so please contact us to discuss on
