Hall Place

Hall Place Hall Place is a stunning Tudor house with magnificent gardens. You can also follow us on Twitter

Sitting on the banks of the River Cray, Hall Place was once the country residence of Sir John Champneys, a successful merchant and former Lord Mayor of London. Today you can imagine genteel life in Tudor times as you explore the 500-year-old historic house or take a stroll in the spectacular gardens. Throughout the year, exciting exhibitions and events make Hall Place the perfect destination for all the family.

On we had to mention the fabulous Countess of Limerick.

She resided at Hall Place from 1917 - 1943. Overcoming many trials during her lifetime, as well as working hard to restore and maintain Hall Place even though she was only a tenant (for which we are very grateful).

Did you also know she set up the Shamrock League - selling buttonholes of the Irish National emblem to raise money for soldiers and sailors of the Boer War. Her charity work continued during the First World War when she, alongside other ladies, set up a buffet at London Bridge Station for returning service men. She was awarded a CBE in 1920 for this work.

If you would like to learn more about the Countess then why not come along to one of our historic house tours https://www.hallplace.org.uk/guided-tours/

A lovely review from a recent wedding at Hall Place. Thank you Claire and Leigh for your kind words, wishing you all the best for the future!

"I just wanted to email you to thank you and your amazing team on making our wedding day the most amazing day!
The messages and comments I have had from my friends and family have not stopped and wanted to share with you but they have all pretty much said the same…..
‘The food was the best they have ever had at any wedding or event they had been too! ‘
I totally agree with them, the food was amazing!
You all made sure that me and Leigh had the most perfect day and we really appreciate all your efforts in making it a day to cherish forever."
Happy Easter Saturday, another warm day here in Wiltshire
