Situated in a quiet suburb of Peterborough is this delightful medieval tower, part of a manor house that was built around 1300. Inside you will discover a hidden gem, because the main chamber is covered with an incredible set of wall paintings from the 14th century. Leading experts have listed Longthorpe Tower as one of the 100 most important historic sites in the UK.
" Kings, saints, animals, musicians and monsters jostle for space in the finest set of domestic medieval wall paintings anywhere in Western Europe.
" These wall paintings give a glimpse into the medieval view of the world. Look out for the monster that fires flaming poo from its bottom!
" Visit our exhibition, which tells the story of the Tower and the remarkable family that built it, who rose from being humble peasants who worked the land to become knights who rubbed shoulders with kings.
