Layer Marney Tower

On the shores of the River Blackwater rests Layer Marney Tower. The Tudor palace was built by Lord Henry Marney – a close friend of Henry VIII – in the 16th century, and is a historic statement of power and wealth.

The house features the tallest Tudor gatehouse in the UK, at 80 feet tall. Its extravagant brickwork patterns and ornate terracotta decorations were inspired by Italian designs of the time. Take a tour and explore the surrounding parkland to discover the estate’s 500 years of history.

A 50 minute drive from Basildon, Layer Marney is midway between Colchester and Tiptree. Follow the brown tourist road signs or use the estate’s postal code in your GPS device.
