Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum forms an unmissable attraction in Essex.  It combines beautiful formal lakeside gardens, a stunning Arboretum with an enviable collection of trees originating from every temperate area of the world and miles of leafy woodland walks to explore and enjoy.

The Charitable Trust was established in 1971 and receives no external funding.  Our vision is to respect the heritage of the Estate while developing a restorative and inspiring landscape that is good for people, plants and wildlife.  With your support, we will ensure that this special place will be enjoyed by generations to come.
