This incomplete Grade I red-brick Tudor Palace was built by Henry, 1st Baron Marney, Henry VIII's Lord Privy Seal, and has stories to tell from nearly 500 years of history. It is known that Henry VIII came to stay, suspected that Elizabeth I dropped by for a brief rest, and had a glorious Edwardian period.
The tour will be from one end of the building to the other, going through the private parts of the family home as well as some of the larger rooms not open to the general visitor. It is mainly on the ground and first floor and follows a different route to any other tours. Most tours are arranged on days when the place opens in the afternoon which allows you to return to as a normal visitor to the tower, gardens and church at no extra cost, until 5pm.
Tours include traybake with tea or coffee.
Event organiser is Layer Marney Tower.
