Kelmarsh Hall and Gardens is an elegant Palladian style country house with a prevailing history of the 20th century.
 Built in the 1730s, Kelmarsh hall was the beloved home to three families across two hundred and fifty years.
Surrounding the hall are historic gardens, restored to evoke their early 20th century designs,
with a unique walled garden at the heart.

Kelmarsh Hall is the perfect venue to hold an event to remember; the historic setting provides a warm and
intimate atmosphere for any occasion, large or small.
