This is part of the Viking Triangle & holds many Viking artefacts in the one tower. A charming tower steeped with history. Watch your head as you climb the spiral stone staircase.

On the tourist map but tucked away Reginald's Tower was a surprisingly interesting and informative place to visit. Displays are well presented and the infomation is both interesting and easy to read. A pleasant and informative visit at a moderate fee

Hi, as mentioned it depends on how your claustrophobic tolerance is. The stairwell is narrow and round, each of the floors are wide open, so no problem there.
