The tower will close its doors for the final time this season on Saturday, October 27.

Town clerk Claire Boyne said: “Our dedicated tower volunteers have worked extremely hard this season to open the tower for the majority of the weekends since Easter.

“It is now the final weekend and so this will be the last chace this year for visitors to receive a guided tour of the tower, including a chance to see the bells.

“The climb up the stairs is well worth it in order to take in the stunning views across the Waveney Valley at the top.”

Ms Boyne added: “Please come along and support this historic attraction.”

Beccles Bell Tower will be open from 10am - with the last trip up the tower starting at 3.30pm.
