Lord Marney's Tudor palace, with beautiful gardens, buildings, and parkland dating from 1520. Built in the first half of Henry VIII's reign, Layer Marney Tower is in many ways the apotheosis of the Tudor Gatehouse. England's tallest Tudor gatehouse offers visitors magnificent views to the Blackwater estuary and beyond.

The view from the roof shows the church, outbuildings, play area, gardens, estate and wildlife walk. Layer Marney Tower is a great place to visit whether you are planning to exhaust the children in the play area or enjoy the tranquility of the garden.

Stop at the History Room to learn more about the buildings' past and see the model of how Layer Marney Tower might have looked had Lord Marney lived to complete his palace.
