Hall Place & Gardens - temporary closure of formal gardens

The formal lawns at Hall Place have recently experienced an increase in visitor numbers. This, along with the recent wet weather, has caused substantial damage to the ground and a health and safety risk to our visitors.

In order to prevent further damage and ensure the safety of our visitors, the formal gardens to the North of the River Cray at Hall Place will be temporarily closed from Thursday 14 January.

Access to the south parkland will be made available via the main stone gate. Please follow signs on site which allow for a circular path to ensure maximum social distancing on the route to and from the parkland via the Weir bridge. The gardens will close at 4pm

We will re-open the formal gardens at the earliest opportunity

Please be advised that Bexley Butterfly House & Plant Centre have decided to close during this current lockdown - but the good news is they are still up and running on line...so you can still get your plants!

Evening All,

If you've followed us on our journey from August, you'll know we've had a lot of hurdles and restrictions to navigate, and now facing our second lockdown as a new business, we fully understand the reasons and support the decision as we need to control the virus and ultimately our staff and customers come first.

We are pretty resilient and will be back even better !

However our mail order side will continue, whilst closed we'll be adding to our website more plants and gifts, the sale continues online and extends now for an extra week, we will be temporarily disabling our collect from shop option and will deliver via royal mail or local drop off/ arranged collection from the car park.

We hope you stay safe and well and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible.

From all of us at Bexley Butterfly House and Plant Centre we want to thank you for your continued support.

We thought we’d take a little trip down toy memory lane looking through the museum collection. What was your favourite present you received for Christmas as a child? We just can’t decide which of these is our favourite though?!! Anyone else receive a Bronco horse, made by Erith toy manufacturer? Or our sweet 1930s clockwork cat?

Something to entertain the little ones with! Up and running as from the 5th December. If you want to pop down on Sunday, just to advise the car park is likely to be quite busy as we have the return of the Farmers Market and also sports are being played on the fields. We would suggest finding alternative ways of getting to us if possible...walk, public transport maybe?

WE'RE BACK!

Hi everyone hope you're all safe and well. It's been an excruciatingly long month, and to be honest we thought those last few days back at the beginning of November were going to be our last for this year. However we've been very fortunate in that we've been allocated Tier 2 status and therefore we're allowed to reopen. We'll be re-open from the 4th of December and open on the 5th, 6th 11th, 12th and 13th.

However please note and follow the Tier 2 guidelines set out by the Government.

We have both our own track and trace form which is required to be filled out as well as the QR code system in place for you to sign in if you're using it. All of us are wearing face coverings and we have screening around. We also have an increased cleaning regime with disinfectant sprays in place.

However in order for us to be able to stay open for our dates in December and re-open after our little winter break next year we're going to have to ask you all to help us with the next bit. We're needing you to please keep to your household bubbles when you arrive and throughout the experience.

We have a face covering policy in place for anyone over the age of 11 unless you are exempt.

We have our hand wash facilities which in most part are foot operated and sensor operated which you are all invited to use on entering and leaving our experience.

We're needing you to keep socially distanced between your household groups of at least 2m. Now we know when we're out and about we can find it hard to judge distances so we've put yellow owl silhouettes through out our one way system. Please keep at least 2 silhouettes between household bubbles.

Through following these requests not only will we be keeping everybody as safe as possible when visiting our experience, we're hoping to be able to stay away from tier 3 and avoid having to close.

Please do not enter the experience if you or someone in your household bubble is experiencing Covid Symptoms

Thank you all from the JAMBS OWLS TEAM.

Hello, can anyone please let me know if the daffodils are out yet in the park. I’m really looking forward to seeing them as soon as they are!
Infrared approach to Hall Place www.derekmichalski.com
Just two of a number of infrared images taken recently at Hall Place
Disgusting you’ve just charge me a pound for 1 oz of hot water for a babies bottle! Defo not baby friendly!
Very surprised to see large amounts of the invasive himalayan balsam in Hall Place today. Does this need reporting to local council or environment agency?
Popped by to feed the wildfowl my lettuce and peas. These goslings seemed happy with the wild plants on the bank.
If anybody's lost their keys, we found this set of two silver keysbin the grass at Hall Place yesterday evening. We placed them on the closest picnic bench - side of the river opposite to the house, the end by the visitor centre/Miller & Carter.
Does anyone know what time Hall Place is open until today?
Just been to Hall Place for our daily walk, which was deserted. Great that it's open, but someone has spray painted two lines outside claiming the distance is 2 metres (see photo) when it's very clearly not. I am 1.8m tall and I'm at least a head taller. Normally I'd make some sarcy comment about someone's incompetence, but if social distancing is to be taken seriously, than it's actually dangerously misleading.
