Although now closed to general visitors, (we re-open on Sunday 29th March, 2020) the Tower doesn’t go into hibernation for the winter. We are busy with parties, conferences, meetings, school visits and of course weddings. Winter weddings at Layer Marney Tower are so lovely. With our state the art, wood chip boiler, the ceremony room and Long Gallery are warm and inviting, with the Long Gallery’s log fire adding to the atmosphere. Twinkling lights and masses of greenery and elegant Christmas trees…this really is the stuff that Fairy Tale Weddings are made of.
We have also been very busy preparing for our third annual Christmas event. The fact so many people are returning each year, is testimony to the fact that this event is a fantastic run up to Christmas, getting everyone in the Christmas spirit! Arrival is at 11.30 for coffee in the Corsellis Room, then there is a Guided Tour of the Tower to rooms decorated ready for the family’s Christmas, remember, Layer Marney Tower is a family home, which brings with it a very special charm.

A short walk to the church for a special Christmas play, The Tailor of Gloucester and some carol singing. Back to the Corsellis Room for mulled wine and mince pies, before leaving at 4.40 pm.
