Christmas at Layer Marney Tower 9th – 13th Dec
Monday 9th December
A unique Christmas Event for groups and individuals. Arrive at the stunning Layer Marney Tower, where you will be met by your guide and served coffee in the magnificent Corsellis Room. After coffee, it’s time to explore the house, visiting rooms not normally open to visitors, for this is a family home and you will see it decorated for a family Christmas, with sparkling lights and towering trees, candles and log fires. Leading you from room to room, your Guide will tell you tales from Tudor times to the present day giving you a little background history as well as some family secrets.
Your Christmas lunch will be served in the Long Gallery after which the actors will escort you across the lawn to the church for the performance of their Christmas play – the Tailor of Gloucester. There will be a chance to sing some well known carols before returning to the Corsellis Room for mince pies and mulled wine, serenaded by the cast, who will wave you off ready to prepare for your own family Christmas.
The cost is £57.50 per person for groups of 15 or more. £59.50 for individuals. The event runs 9th – 13th December, each day will start at 11.30am and finish at 4.40 pm.
