Beckford's Tower and Museum

Beckford's Tower was built between 1826 and 1827 and is a remarkable building that was home to an array of the greatest collections of books, furniture and art.

Beckford's Tower is the only surviving example of William Beckford's fantastic architectural achievements.

Beckford's Tower and Museum explores William Beckford's life and gives you an insight into what his life was like when he was an owner of Jamaican sugar plantations. 

William Beckford authorised an impressive Tower in 1826, he created a garden between his Lansdown Crescent home and the retreat now known as Beckford’s Tower. 

Numerous buildings designed within this landscape are now lost or have become detached from each other, yet Beckford’s Tower still stands above the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Bath.
