The Hall has been home to the Proby family since 1660.  It is an enchanting house which has evolved throughout the centuries.  Every room contains magnificent treasures, from late 15th century Old Masters, to Reynolds, Constable and remarkable Victorian painters such as Millais and Alma Tadema.  Each generation has collected books and there are three libraries containing over 10,000 books. One of the most remarkable is Henry VIII’s prayer book with inscriptions by him and his three children. The garden has been lovingly restored over the last 35 years with mature topiary, a Gothic Orangery and billowing flower borders set between immaculately cut hedges.

We regret, no photography in the house.  The house has limited disabled access and is not suitable for wheelchairs or mobility aids as there are stairs. The garden is flat with gravel paths and ramp to disabled toilets.  Tours of the house are in small guided groups but are free flow on Bank Holiday weekends.  No dogs except guide dogs (in gardens only). 


Groups: Welcome by appointment.  Please contact the Events Office: events@eltonhall.com / 01832 280468

Meeting, Conference & Wedding facilities:  Please contact the Events Office: events@eltonhall.com / 01832 280468

Elton Hall has a beautiful Gothic Orangery and a lantern-ceiling Victorian Billiard Room licensed for wedding ceremonies.
The formal gardens are ideal for drinks receptions and provide a stunning backdrop to wedding photographs.  The Parkland can accommodate  marquees of any size with enough parking for the whole wedding party.

Please contact the Events Office who will be happy to discuss the plans for your special day.   events@eltonhall.com / 01832 280468
