Hall Place and Gardens

A brief history of the house and gardens’

Hall Place is a fine Tudor mansion built almost 500 years ago in the reign of Henry VIII for the Lord Mayor of London, Sir John Champneys. It boasts a magnificent panelled Tudor Great Hall and minstrel’s gallery, and views over award winning gardens, with topiary, a herb garden, a secret garden, Italianate garden and inspirational herbaceous borders. In its former walled gardens is a plant nursery and sub-tropical plant house where you can see ripening bananas in mid-winter.
