Marks Hall Gardens and Arboretum
The 200 acres of gardens and arboretum at Marks Hall form an unmissable attraction in the Essex countryside. Marks Hall combines many English traditions with beautiful formal gardens and a stunning arboretum with an enviable collection of mature trees from all the temperate areas of the world. The walled garden is an unique blend of traditional long borders and contemporary gardens with inventive landscaping, grass sculpture and stunningly colourful mass plantings. The Coach House, with its traditional oak beams, mellow brickwork and beautifully tended gardens filled with romantic blooms, provides a very special setting to celebrate weddings.
