Faringdon Folly Tower and Woodland

This unique 100ft tower is Faringdon’s icon and the last major folly to be built in England. It sits on Folly Hill, within a charming woodland of splendid Scots Pine some more than 200 years old. Climb the Tower and see fantastic views over 5 counties. Find out about the history of the Tower and Folly Hill. Spend time in the woodland. Seek out 24 black birds and the giant willow pie, Cromwell’s cannon, the fairly useless bridge, Lord Berners in a tree!, a giraffe, the fairy house, a troll and many birds and animal sculptures lurking among the trees. Less than 15 minutes walk from Faringdon Market Square The Tower is open from April to October on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month. The woodland is always open and entry is free.
