Basildon Park is an impressive Georgian mansion built in the late 18th Century, surrounded by glorious parkland. The property was lovingly rescued from ruin by Lord and Lady Iliffe in the mid 1950s, when they restored the elegant interior and scoured the country salvaging 18th-century architectural fixtures and fittings. In 2005 Basildon Park became ‘Netherfield’ in the recent adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. The suite of perfectly restored rooms, which were originally intended for the great entertainments of country house life, provide a unique historical setting for your special day. The parkland and gardens provide outstanding photograph opportunities, and several beautiful marquee sites. Working together with a team of experienced event organisers and designers your day can be made perfect.
