Hall Place & Gardens Pt. 2

I thought I would quickly move on from Beastley Hall
and out into the gardens

The house faces right onto the main road

The wall on the left shows the structure of the stone work

This Grade I Tudor listed mansion was built for a former Lord Mayor of London in 1537 and is situated in 65 acres of stunning gardens

The gardens are big on topiary

There was obviously an add on addition at some time

There were many artists dotted around the place

It is now time to have lunch in the restaurant

All sides of the house are different

interesting ironwork on the gate to the main road
The day of this visit we visited two more interesting but very different houses close by so stay tuned

The gardens are not a bit scary!

Stunning photos. I must visit place one day. There is absolutely no place in the world that have more beautiful gardens than England!

Thanks so much for the virtual tour.

The gardens have more charm than the interior of the house. Lovely paths. I find it so interesting that these historic sites have lunch facilities - such a great idea.

Sixty five acres?? Goodness. I think I'd need a room at the Hall for a few days :-) Beautiful views in nearly every direction.
