Invitation to View – Guided Tour

A chance to have a Guided Tour with the owners for individuals or small groups.    Invitation to View is now part of Historic Houses, the UK’s largest association of independently owned, lived-in historic homes and gardens.  Please book either on line at Historic Houses or by phone 01946 690823.

Layer Marney Tower has an Invitation to View Guided Tour on 5th December at 6.30 pm – a special Christmas Invitation to View with mince pies and mulled wine.

Invitation to View is a network of historic houses that are open to visitors on certain days of the year.  Some are not generally open to visitors and this is a fantastic chance to get behind the closed doors.  The tours take you behind the scenes and are often led by the owners of the houses.  There are Invitation to View properties in the Midlands, North West and North Wales, the South West, London and the South East as well as Eastern England and the Home Counties.

Although Layer Marney Tower is open to visitors in the summer months and we do also have Guided Tours, these are only for groups of 20 or more, Invitation to View gives individuals the chance of a tour without having to get together a group.

Members of Historic Houses qualify for a reduced entrance on Invitation to View tours.

Kate Worsely from Country Living says of Invitation to View “Each house, each group, each visit is as individual as its owner and as unpredictable as the weather”
