Longthorpe Tower and its collection

Longthorpe Tower

Longthorpe Tower was built around AD 1300. It is a very well preserved example of a solar tower, containing the private apartments of the owner of the fortified house. It boasts one of the most complete and important sets of 14th century domestic wall paintings in northern Europe. This varied ‘spiritual encyclopaedia’ of worldly and religious subjects includes the Wheel of Life, the Nativity and King David. The Tower is owned by English Heritage but managed by Vivacity Culture & Leisure, a registered charity.
