Spend a family day out enjoying everything that this delightful attraction has on offer.
Marks Hall Estate is a striking heritage landscape that extends to over 2,200 acres of Essex countryside.
The Arboretum forms an unmissable attraction, combining beautiful formal lakeside gardens, an enviable collection of trees originating from every temperate area of the world and miles of leafy woodland walks to explore and enjoy.
When little legs get weary, head to the Tea Room which serves drinks, freshly prepared lunches, cakes baked on site and delicious cream teas. Or take along a picnic to the Picnic Field, which is shaded by Oak trees and and overlooks the 18th century barn.
There’s also a great children’s play area within the Arboretum.
Look out for family events throughout the year.
