  • Worth a visit as it can be seen for miles from many areas.Probably time spent there no more than 10 min.The road leading up to the tower quite narrow.Its on the Llandeilo to Carmarthen road with the t...  more »
  • You can see this "folly" for miles. We were staying locally on a break and knew we weren't far when we saw Paxton's Tower. Well worth the effort is passing. It doesnt take long to walk from the car pa...  more »

  • This is a truly special place views are amazing would love to see to see the stained glass window that was once here a picture of Lord Nelson as paxtons tower was a tribute to lord Nelson the national trust do a good job but would love to see top floor open
  • I used to see this tower regularly from the road to Dryswlyn and always intended to visit it. I made the trip today and was not disappointed. The tower is set on its own in a large field, and is exposed to the elements - Go on a nice day! It has a panoramic view of the valley below and you can see all the way to Llandeilo. The tower itself is well kept, however today the gate leading to the upper levels was locked unfortunately. Take a pair of binoculars with you and a good camera - There's a lot to take in!
  • Fantastic views over looking the towy Valley
  • Access to the tower is available 24/7 but when I visited the first floor was padlocked shut.
  • Great views from here, you can see from the botanical gardens all down the flood plain to Dinefwr castle. Only the tower though, nothing else here
