Whether it is a bridal or a baby shower, birthday, retirement, or cocktail party, memorial service – whatever the occasion may be – Tower Hill provides a picturesque environment that your guests will talk about for years to come.

Each season offers a different garden experience—Spring brings beautiful bulbs including daffodils, tulips, and tender perennials. Summer: Lilies, Daylilies, and lush greens. Fall: the colorful New England foliage. Winter: semi-tropical plants and citrus trees in our two conservatories. Plus countless more plants, trees, and foliage, as well as some very friendly chipmunks!

Tower Hill is available to host your private event from February through October.

Daytime social events are able to be hosted between the hours of 10am-3pm (2pm for conservatories). View our full Daytime Social offerings here.

Evening social events are able to be hosted between the hours of 6pm-11pm (10pm for weekday evenings). Please Note: Thursday-Sunday evenings are not available for rent from approximately Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend. View our full Evening Social offerings here.
