The Naze Tower was built in 1720 by Trinity House as a Navigation Mark for ships sailing in and out of the port of Harwich. In its early days it would have had a beacon on the top with fires lit, it is the predecessor of the reflective lighthouse which was invented about 100 years later. The Naze Tower is grade 2* listed for unique architectural interest. This historic 86ft landmark is dramatically situated on the cliffs at The Naze – its roof viewing platform gives 360 degree panoramic views of coastal Essex and Suffolk. Inside, the tower houses an art gallery showing exhibitions by East Anglian artists, a museum about the history of the Tower and the Naze and a tea rooms.
