Southchurch Hall is a fascinating place to explore and unwind; a medieval moated, timber-framed manor house a hidden gem of South East Essex.

Dating from the early 14th century Southchurch Hall was home to farming families until the 1920s. The property was extensively restored in 1930 and presented to the town of Southend. A short walk from Southend on Sea's busy seafront and high street the house, gardens and archaeology are a green oasis captured in time.

The Hall is a licensed venue for weddings and the gardens provide a perfect backdrop for photographs.
