Visited whilst on holiday in the area. Plenty of parking and bike racks for cyclists also picnic benches for those wanting to say a while longer. Entry is an honesty box inside the tower itself. You are able to visit the rooms that have been laid out to resemble what life would have been like living inside the tower during times of trouble. There is plenty of information to read although some of it is a little faded. We did not go to the top of the tower as I don't like heights but another couple who were there at the same time said the views were lovely. You definitely don't want to be inside when the clock strikes on the hour !! There are also a couple of walks through the grounds and the one down to the spring where water is pumped from is interesting and through some magnificent trees. If in the area it is worth whiling away an hour to discover something of the history of the area.
Worth calling in if you are passing

Interesting spot if you happen to be driving or cycling on route 1 to call in for a look at this historic building. Few picnic benches for s picnic and toilets but not too much else to do.
Lovely location for wedding photographs

Preston Tower is a lovely peaceful location with a well laid out garden. I have visited this site many times and it is particularly beautiful in the autumn when the flowers are in full bloom. My daughter had Wedding photos taken here.
Lovley strange looking building noticed when i was passing thro this afternoon and looked lovley when the sun was shining down on this small village.
Fascinating and peaceful

Following an Ordnance Survey route we came across Preston Tower. It was fascinating - there used to be lots of towers like this but this is one of the few that top has survived - at least gas of it has! Entry by honesty box - only £2. You climb up the tower seeing the single rooms on each level until the open roof with great views. The gardens around the tower would make a great picnic place except when the loud clock strikes!
