Panorama Tower

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.

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.

Open days for the Panorama Tower are currently suspended but you can still visit the outside.
