A visit to Elton Hall is like a walk through history as it reflects the changing tastes and vision of each generation, making it the unique and magical place it is today.
Every room is packed with magnificent treasures - antique furniture and a superb collection of fine paintings including important works by Old Masters dating from the early 15th-century to remarkable 19th-century works by J. F. Lewis, Landseer & Millais.
The library is particularly noteworthy and includes one of the most important collections in private hands. Revel in the opportunity to see the prayer book given to the infamous Henry VIII; inside it you can see the handwriting of this tyrannical Tudor king as well as that of his three children.
In the magnificent gardens, a programme of restoration which began in the 1980's continues to this day with the creation of a Gothic Orangery, flower garden, arboretum and an enchanting sunken lily pond.

Thank you so much for all of your help on the day of our wedding and beforehand. We had the most perfect afternoon and all our guests loved Elton Hall's grounds and The Orangery setting
The Orangery is perfect for an intimate wedding party accommodating 15 guests inside and 30 outside.
For larger wedding parties of up to 250 guests, marquees can be erected in the park adjacent to the house or the Orangery.
The Billiard Room
The Billiard Room will comfortably hold up to 70 people.
Elton Hall can provide a wonderful venue for your event, whatever the size. If you would like a grand dinner, the Dining Room can accommodate between 20–50 people, or if you would like something simpler, the Billiard Room can hold similar numbers.
The parkland is ideal for outdoor pursuits and we offer a blank canvas on which you can plan a special event.
