Tower Valley

The Pepperpot Tower

When you stroll beyond the Japanese Gardens, you will come upon Tower Valley surrounded by stunning variety of trees. Here you will find the Pepperpot Tower which was modelled on a pepperpot from Lord Powerscourt’s dining table! It is from this that Tower Valley received its distinctive name. Climb the tower’s winding steps and enjoy the views of Powerscourt House and Gardens. Why not stop for a photo beside the many cannons surrounding the tower! Children will love exploring the Tower and playing princesses or soldiers!

Lord Powerscourt was an avid fan of the scouting movement and encouraged troops to camp on the grounds at Powerscourt. When you reach the top of the tower, you are standing where Lord Powerscourt 8th Viscount once stood and surveyed the scout camps long ago, although now the trees have grown too high to do so! Scout troops still occasionally camp on these grounds today.

Enjoy the wide variety of trees at Tower Valley including the Sitka Spruce, Western Red Cedar, European Silver Fir, Dawn Redwood, Torrey Pine and the Giant Sequoia

Did you know that scenes from the award winning TV Series, The Tudors was filmed at the Pepperpot Tower?
