Hall Place and Gardens

About

Hall Place is a Grade I listed country house built in 1537 for former Lord Mayor of London, Sir John Champneys. The Tudor house, that has recently been extensively restored, boasts a panelled Great Hall with minstrel's gallery. 17th century additions and improvements include a vaulted Long Gallery and splendid Drawing Room with fine plaster ceiling.

Set in award-winning gardens on the banks of the River Cray with magnificent topiary, enclosed gardens and inspirational herbaceous borders. In the walled gardens there are sub-tropical glasshouses and a nursery selling plants grown in the Hall Place gardens.

Free admission to house and gardens. Following restoration, new displays include an introduction to the house's history and exhibits from Bexley's museum collection. The new visitor centre offers a riverside tearoom and gift shop. Events programme throughout the year.
