Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Breath-taking Enchanting Luxurious Exclusive Inspiring

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Almost everywhere you turn at Hales there is another beautiful view, but perhaps our favourite spot is the wooden bench at the end of the long topiary avenue of white roses and blue delphiniums.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

HRH Prince Charles as been a guest at Hales Hall.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?
