Welcome to Hall Place and Gardens

One of the South East’s best-kept secrets. This historic house and garden, rich in fascinating history, welcomes visitors all year round with a range of exhibitions and public events and stunning spaces for weddings and other celebrations.

Up and coming closures and restrictions

Due to the  set up for the Alcock and Brown Community Day on Sunday 21 July, the entire site will remain closed until 10am with access purely restricted to stall holders prior to this time. This large event starts at 10am with extra parking on the sports fields.

The historic house and surrounding landscaped gardens will be closed on Tuesday 23 July for a private event. The Butterfly Jungles, the Riverside Tearoom and Stables gallery will remain open as usual. There will be access to the gardens up until the Riverside Tearoom using the pedestrian entrance from the car park. We hope that the house and gardens will reopen mid-afternoon and will post further timings as soon as we are able

Unfortunately,  All About Owls will be closed on Wednesday 31 July due to a family funeral.
