Christmas at Layer Marney Tower

Christmas at Layer Marney Tower

Fantastic event, entertainment, lunch and tour

Arriving at the stunning Layer Marney Tower, a Tudor Palace built to impress Henry VIII, you will be met by your guide and served coffee in the magnificent Corsellis Room. After coffee it’s time to explore the house, visiting rooms not normally open to visitors, for this is a family home and you will see it decorated for a family Christmas, with sparkling lights and towering trees, candles and log fires. Leading you from room to room, your Guide will tell you tales from Tudor times to the present day, giving you a little background history as well as some family secrets. Your Christmas lunch will be service in the Long Gallery, once the Tudor stables, then transformed in Edwardian times to the grand room it is today. After lunch, the actors will escort you to the nearby church for the performance of their Christmas play, The Tailor of Gloucester. You will have a chance to sing some well known carols before you return to the Corsellis Room for mulled wine and mince pies, serenaded by the cast, as they wave you off, full, we hope, of festive food and cheer,

ready to prepare your own Christmas celebrations. Please note, Layer Marney Tower is an old building and has a variety of surfaces and steps. However, with the help from our team there is only one room that is not wheelchair accessible. There is a lift to the Corsellis Room and a ramp to the Long Gallery.
