Take a rare opportunity to step behind the door that hundreds of local people walk past every day on this special tour of Town Walls Tower.

  • Booking essential

Built in the fourteenth century to provide protection against Wales; delve into the history of the tower on one of our pre-booked, timed tours. The Town Walls tower has recently become one of the National Trust's newest holiday cottages and this adds a completely different flavour to the tour. The history of the building is still very evident making this quirky cottage definitely worth a sneaky peek. All tours are pre-booked and National Trust Members must produce their cards on arrival. Tours start promptly as space inside the tower is very limited, so late arrivals may not be able to be accommodated.
