Today the 17th Century Tower serves as the Bangor's Visitor Information Centre
Bangor VIC, Tower House, Visitor Information Centre
The 17th Century Tower and adjoining Tower House on Bangor Seafront are well preserved reminders of Bangor's sea-faring history alongside its modern Marina.
Originally built in 1637 as a Custom House, the architecture of the Tower is unique in Bangor and rare in Ulster. Over the past 300 years the building has served various purposes - private dwellings, an antique shop and housed hot sea water baths.
The future of the Tower House was protected when the Historic Buildings Branch of the Department of the Environment added it to their "List of Buildings of Special Interest" in 1979.
