Panorama Tower

Panorama Tower Open Days are back! Take a peek inside one of Croome's eye-catchers which is usually closed to the public. The Grade 1 listed Panorama Tower was designed by James Wyatt in 1801 and was based on an earlier design by Robert Adam for a similar building in 1760s.

With fantastic panoramic views across the surrounding countryside from the top of the tower, you'll understand why James Wyatt chose this location to build the Panorama Tower for the 6th Earl of Coventry in 1801.

The remaining open days in 2022 are, Tuesday 16 August, Saturday 3 September and Wednesday 21 September. For opening times and more details on how to get to the Panorama Tower please click link below.

The building is made of Bath stone and was modelled on Tempietto Romano in Rome, which was designed by Donato Bramante.

Significant funding from The Rowlands Trust and Natural England enabled Croome to acquire and restore the Panorama Tower.

Inside the building is a spiral staircase which leads to the 360 degree viewing platform, hence 'Panorama'.  From there you can see part of Croome's 'Capability' Brown designed landscape, Worcester Cathedral and the surrounding countryside of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
