Hengrave Hall is a beautiful Tudor mansion set in fifty acres of boundless lawns and meadows and features a majestic lake, and a private chapel. Located just north of Bury St Edmunds in the village of Hengrave in Suffolk.
Thomas Kytson the Elder built the house in 1525 and work was completed in 1538. Hengrave Hall is noted for it’s ornate oriel window incorporating the royal arms of Henry VIII and the Kytson arms. John Wastell, was responsible for the oriel window and he was also the architect of the chapels at Eton College and King’s College, Cambridge. The chapel contains 21 lights of Flemish glass the only collection of pre-reformation glass that has remained in situ in a domestic chapel anywhere in England. In 1578 Elizabeth I stayed at Hengrave and a chamber is named in her honour.
Today Hengrave Hall is available for exclusive hire as a wedding venue along with conferences and other special events.
