Charmingly presented, giving wonderful impression of the use of the once numerous towers, as refuge from raiders, and places to hold hostages. Views from top. Privately owned and managed. Fully worth the honesty box £2 entry. And deserving of support. Delightful place for a picnic.

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.

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.

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...More

A lovely place to wyle away a hour or so. The cost is £2 via a honesty box & worth every penny. The tower is full of information about its history. It is set up to show examples of how it may have looked when...More

We'd seen signs but weren't sure what it is. A quite interesting small tower which must have had great views from the top before the trees were allowed to grow to obscure many of them. A few notes about the Battle of Flodden, with diagrams....More
