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. Fantastic views over 5 counties- Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire. Find out about the history of Folly Hill, Henry James Pye, Oliver Cromwell and the very eccentric Lord Berners (the creator of the tower). Seek out 24 black birds, Cromwell’s cannon, the fairly useless bridge - even a giraffe- and the many birds and animal sculptures lurking among the trees.
11am to 5pm. Adults £3, 11-16s £1, Under 11s free. The woodland is always open and entry is free.
