following a trip to craster in Northumberland we stopped off at Preston Tower on the way back. I've always wanted to visit and it was well worth it on this hot summers day. the tower cost £1.50 a child and £2 an adult and is not manned so an honesty box is in place. you are free to look around the tower and has story boards on each floor relating to the history of the tower and area mostly relating to the conflicts between England and Scotland. The view from the roof is excellent and young children should not be left unattended as the rails are quite easy to scale. there are also several woodland walks you can do and I would imagine this place would be great in the Autumn. There are also resident pigs in a secure field as you head down to the pond which are very friendly and hold the childrens attention for a while. there are also several picnic tables around the tower. no dogs are allowed into the tower but are allowed on the walks and an outside tap is located outside the tower if you or your dog is thirsty.
