Marks Hall Estate is a leading visitor attraction within a beautiful heritage landscape that extends to over 2,200 acres of Essex countryside.

Managed and cared for by a charitable trust, the estate includes broadleaved woodlands, a stunning Arboretum showcasing a collection of rare trees from across the globe, relaxing lakes, a walled garden featuring the longest herbaceous border in the county and much more. You'll also find the Orchard Kitchen café serving meals and light refreshments throughout the day, and a shop and Plant Centre selling a range of local products including works by artists and photographers.

Join in the fun with our year-round events programme, including family friendly activities, live music and theatre performances.

Marks Hall Estate also offers venue hire, including an 18th century Coach House, and is the perfect setting for weddings, family gatherings, parties and corporate events.
