Town Calendar


Beccles Bell Tower opens on various dates during the summer season.  Visitors can count the number of steps (over 100) to the top and enjoy the spectacular views across the Waveney Valley and towards Gt Yarmouth and Lowestoft.  Visitors will be given an informative guided tour on the way up, including a chance to see the bells.  Opening dates are as follows:-



Friday 18th August 10am to 4pm (last trip up 3:45pm)

(Fundraising for St Michael’s Church)

Saturday 19th August (Carnival) 10am to 4pm

(last trip up 3:45pm)

Sunday 20th August (Carnival) 11am to 3:30pm

(last trip up 3:15pm. There will be a 1 hour break for the parade – to be confirmed)


*From the 21st August 2017, Waveney District Council will be starting repairs to the external stonework of the bell tower and so the tower will be closed to the public.  The work involves erecting scaffold around the tower to allow the contractors safe access to all the external surfaces.  It is hoped that this work will be completed by the beginning of November, in time for Santa’s Grotto to open in the base of the tower on Friday 24 November for the Late Night Shopping Event.
