Panorama Tower

Croome Panorama tower blue sky

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.

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

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.

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

You can view the exterior of the Panorama Tower thoughout the year.  The inside is accessible on special open days, in 2018 the tower will be open on Sunday 14 January, Friday 23 March, Sunday 22 April, Tuesday 22 May, Saturday 23 June, Friday 27 July and Sunday 26 August.
