Details

Layer Marney Tower is full of history and stories. The guide book is good but a guided tour opens up the past in a way that a group visit does not.

The tour can be organised to any length but they normally last between an hour and a half and two hours, depending on the chatter.

We have various spaces that can offer catering. Our larges t room can seat up to 120 people, our normal tearoom takes about 35 people and we have spaces in between. We prefer, where possible, for a meal or refreshments to be booked in advance as it makes for a better experience.

Look on our website for the booking form which also has the current menu offers.
