Layer Marney Tower is a grand Tudor House. This magnificent building was built by Henry, Lord Marney in 1520. What stands today was supposed to be part of a grand palace but after his death it was never completed. Join a guided tour of this fascinating Tower which in rich in history. After the tour we are seated in the beautiful long gallery where our festive 3 course lunch will be served. In the afternoon we visit the church for a candle lit carol concert sung by professional singers. We go back to the house where mulled wine and mince pies will be served before we head home. Although there are a lot of steps to the top of the tower, it is a very gentle climb and plenty of stopping off points on the way. Includes: Admission, 3 course lunch with tea/coffee, carol concert, mince pie and mulled wine.
