A tree collection from all the temperate areas of the world set in more than 200 acres of historic landscape provides interest and enjoyment throughout the year at Marks Hall. Follow the paths through the Arboretum, where you can see beautiful vistas and a host of exotic trees from around the world.
Highlights include the Millennium Walk, designed for structure, colour and scent on the shortest days of the year; the largest planting in Europe of Wollemi Pine and the inspired combination of traditional and contemporary planting in the 18th Century Walled Garden.
This impressive Garden combines the best of contemporary and traditional design and includes both long established shrubs and interesting new plantings. The double border is the longest in East Anglia.
Beyond the Gardens and Arboretum, there are woodland walks where wildlife abounds, many species having survived on this site for hundreds of years.
The Visitor Centre, housed in a restored Essex barn, offers information, Shop and Tea Room serving morning coffee, light lunches and teas, with homemade cakes available all day. Our home cooked soup is always welcome after a morning walk or before an afternoon stroll around the spectacular Gardens and Arboretum at Marks Hall.
