Christmas at Layer Marney Tower

8 December 2022 |11:30 am - 4:00 pm

We are not taking any more bookings for our Christmas event. If you have not booked to join us this year, we look forward to seeing you in 2023. Thank you for your support. WISHING YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Arrive to a cup of tea/coffee followed by a tour through the festive rooms of the house decorated with trees, candles and twinkling lights.

Settle down to a traditional three course Christmas lunch in the Long Gallery, once the Tudor stables, with views across the gardens.

After lunch wander over to the underfloor heated Essex Barn for a performance of ‘Twas the Night before Christmas, brought to you by the troupe who created The Tailor of Gloucester play so charmingly last year. This year’s entertainment will be a light-hearted look at how and why our Christmas came into being to form the festivities we recognise today. With Clement C Moore’s classic poem at its heart, expect a trip through time and traditions with music, singing and of course, some jolly audience participation. St Nicholas may even put in an appearance!

Finish the afternoon with mulled wine, a touch of retail therapy and a mince pie. If you want to join in there will be carols round the fireplace.


Layer Marney Tower is an old building and has a variety of surfaces and steps. There is a ramp into the Long Gallery. The Essex Barn is on the flat. We have one lavatory adapted for anyone who has a disability. We will not be climbing to the top of the tower!
