Winter Spots and Christmas Party Venues in Essex

by Jones Davis Owner
Essex is so magical around the holidays. It literally becomes a Winter Wonderland around the Christmas time, which makes you feel the spirit of the holidays even more. Therefore, if you’re hosting a Christmas party for your friends, family or colleagues, you should really be looking at Christmas Party Venues in Essex.

Aside from your party venue, here are four other winter must-visit places in Essex:

The Audley End House

The Audley End House was built by Thomas Howard, the First Earl of Suffolk, from 1605 to 1614. Through the years, the gardens and landscaping of the estate have changed according to each era’s trend, but much of the interior’s original character has been retained, including influences of Robert Adam and Jacobean revival designs. Its exterior design has also retained its Jacobean influences. If you want to travel back in time this holiday season, the Audley End House is a perfect place to visit. They also have a meet-and-greet with Father Christmas and a festive food cooking show with the staff.

The Beth Chatto Gardens

The Beth Chatto Gardens was named after Beth Chatto OBE, an award-winning plantswoman who have spent her life studying the biology of plants and turning unlikely places into beautiful and thriving gardens. Her work with the Gardens began in 1960 and she remains to be a huge part of it until today, working closely with her family, including her granddaughter Julia Bouton who is now the manager of the Gardens. This Christmas season, you can visit the Beth Chatto Gardens with your family for a walk around its beautiful grounds, and then head to the decoration station to make Christmas ornaments with your kids. Also, there are several Christmas Party Venues Essex has to offer, these are worth visiting.

The Greensted Church

The Greensted Church (also known as the St. Andrews Church, Greensted), is the oldest wooden church in the world, which was built about 1300 years ago. The timber used to build the church came from as early as the sixth or seventh centuries, although most of them were from around 1060. It underwent a series of renovations since it was first built, the first major reconstruction happening in 1848-1849, which was followed by a stabilisation work in 1990 and the re-shingling of the spire in 2005. During wintertime, you can visit the Greensted Church from 10 AM to 4P M for a tour around this historical site. There are guided tours and guidebooks available for those interested in visiting the church.

The Marks Hall Gardens & Arboretum

Another great place to visit in Essex this holiday season is the Marks Hall Gardens & Arboretum, which spans across 200 acres of historic landscape. You’ll find paths leading you around the grounds, where you’ll find a wide array of trees and other plants. You can also visit for a beautiful breakfast or afternoon tea overlooking the natural scenery. This holiday, you can attend the Marks Hall Gardens & Arboretum’s Christmas Lunch, where you can enjoy a delicious feast at the traditional and cosy Essex Barn.

For a very special Christmas party, why not bring your guests to a beautiful location in Essex?
