Beccles Bell Tower

A bird’s eye view of Beccles and beyond! The Beccles bell tower is a free-standing edifice associated with the adjacent St. Michael’s church in the market town of Beccles, Suffolk, England.


It stands near the edge of a cliff overlooking the River Waveney, the bell tower rises an additional 97 feet (29.6 m) and is thirty feet square (9m) at its base. It dominates the town as well as the surrounding countryside, much of which is comprised by The Broads National Park. Views of the Waveney, the North Sea on the eastern horizon, and the flat terrain of the broads extending south into Suffolk and, across the river, into nearby Norfolk, can be obtained by scaling the hundred steps to the top of the tower.

The tower is open for visitors to climb to the top and take in the spectacular views!
