Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Preston Tower

The tower was built by Sir Robert Harbotttle in 1392 and is one of the few survivors of 78 pele towers listed in 1415. The tunnel-vaulted rooms remain unaltered and provide a realistic picture of the grim way of life under the constant threat of Border Reivers. Two rooms are furnished in contemporary style and there are displays of historic and local information.
