Hall Place is a stunning Tudor house with magnificent gardens sitting on the banks of the River Cray in Bexley, South-East London. It was built in 1537 for Sir John Champneys, a wealthy merchant and former Lord Mayor of London. The house was extended in 1649 by Sir Robert Austen, a merchant from Tenterden in Kent.
The house is a Grade I listed building and Scheduled Ancient Monument, and surrounded by a 65-hectare award winning garden. Children are welcome at Hall Place and Gardens and the house is regarded as the main teaching tool. All the learning for the Tudor and Victorian taught sessions takes place in the historic environment which helps to enrich the experience. The gardens and grounds are equally important for delivering areas of the science curriculum and a hands-on approach to learning is embedded in the growing plants unit. Teachers can be certain that they will get a good overview to help underpin their work in the classroom.
