A special gathering with your closest friends and family
A unique venue of literary, historical and architectural interest, Beckford's Tower offers intimate ceremonies for 2-40 guests. Choose from the rich, eclectic surroundings of the main museum room, the dramatic backdrop of the loggia above the front steps, or (for up to 4 guests) the breath-taking views from the Belvedere at its summit. The iconic pink 127-step spiral staircase is a magical background for photographs, as is the atmospheric Victorian cemetery with its arches and gates.
Surrounded by Beckford treasures, you and your guests can celebrate your love in the unique retreat of 'England's wealthiest son' whose collection of extraordinary art, beautiful furniture and rare books was second only to that of eighteenth century royalty.
Beckford's Tower was designed by Henry Edmund Goodridge in 1825 and completed in 1827 for William Beckford (1760-1844), one of the nation's most accomplished and interesting characters. The 120-foot neo-classical Tower, which enjoys sweeping views of the countryside, was constructed as a study retreat and to house Beckford's precious collection of art and rare books.
The Tower is now home to a museum collection displaying furniture originally made for the Tower, alongside paintings, prints and objects illustrating William Beckford's life as a writer, collector and patron of the arts.
Visitors can follow in Beckford's footsteps and climb the iconic pink spiral staircase to the beautifully restored Belvedere and experience the spectacular panoramic view of Bath.
