About Basildon Park

Basildon Park is an impressive Georgian mansion built in the late 18th century, surrounded by glorious parkland. The property, which was originally intended as a venue for the great entertainments that were a popular feature of country house life, provides a unique and historical setting for your special day.

There are two wonderful locations for your wedding ceremony - the Garden Room and the South Pavilion Suite that includes our new seasonal marquee.

The Garden Room is octagonal with Ionic columns framing beautifully decorated Eastern designs which adorn the walls. The South Pavilion, once the private dwelling of Lord and Lady Iliffe, is a light and airy wing of the house which is available for your exclusive use.

After the Wedding Ceremony, guests can enjoy a glass of champagne in The Courtyard whilst photographs are taken in the secluded Rose Garden. Following the welcome drinks, guests are called to take their seats in the South Pavilion Marquee for a magical Wedding Reception, Evening Celebrations and Dancing.

Thank you again for your help in making our wedding day so special, we were so lucky with the weather and Basildon Park looked fantastic. The assistance on the day was also so very much appreciated.

Just to say thank you so much for all your help.

By Mr & Mrs Terry via email, on 12 Jul 2012

Thank you for being fantastically accommodating with any requests or ideas, especially when we were worried about the wet weather options (needlessly as it turned out!). The Basildon Park team was also brilliant at managing all the suppliers as a centre point of operations. So many people told me what a beautiful venue it was, and we were so pleased to have picked Basildon, as well as helping the National Trust.
