About Layer Marney Tower

There are many engaged couples out there who want their wedding day venue to be one which is steeped in history, adding that built-in sense of character and warmth that some modern buildings are lacking in.

There are other spaces for more intimate ceremonies too, including the Tuke’s Chamber which seats 40 and the Hall of the House, which can accommodate up to 18 people.
