Hours & Admission

The Naze Tower is owned and still run by a local family, who renovated and opened the Tower to the public in 2004. The admission, tea room and art sales all keep the Tower open to the public, paying the running and maintenance costs.



In line with the government’s roadmap we plan to reopen our doors on Monday May 17th for the viewing platform and museum. The first art show will be the Summer Exhibition starting on 12th June. Visitors can attend in groups of 6 or from two households.

Covid 19 Safety Measures:

  • All visitors except children under age 11 must wear masks in the Tower unless medically exempt
  • All visitors must use our hand sanitising station when entering the Tower
