The tower is 30 metres (98 ft) high and has a capacity of 200,000 gallons of water. It was originally used to supply water to the town of Margate, but it is no longer in use for that purpose. Adisham Water Tower is a popular tourist destination and is also used as a filming location. It has been featured in films such as "The Canterbury Tales" (1972), "The Omen" (1976), and "The Secret Garden" (1993). The tower is currently owned and managed by the Adisham Water Tower Trust. The trust offers guided tours of the tower on certain days of the year.
