History

Gatton Park and its manor was mentioned as far back as the Domesday Book. It achieved more recent notoriety as a 'Rotten Borough', as it could send two representatives to Parliament.

The renowned classical landscape architect 'Capability' Brown was commissioned to design Gatton Park in the 18th century.

Gatton Hall was redeveloped between 1830 and 1841 by the Fifth Baron Monson, with a stunning marble hall modelled on the Corsini Chapel. After this Sir Jeremiah Colman (of mustard fame) purchased the estate in 1888, before unfortunately the house was gutted by fire in the early 20th century, and so was rebuilt in the neo-classical Palladian fashion that we see today.

Finally, after being requisitioned during WWII, Gatton Hall was purchased by the Royal Alexandra and Albert School, and it is now used as boarding accommodation for sixth-form students.

Facilities

The Ballroom

Out of all the State Rooms available, this space is the largest and most commonly used for receptions. This beautiful room can seat 80 guests for formal dining or 120 for a buffet. During the summer months The Ballroom truly springs into life, as the French windows can be thrown open to let the outdoors inside.

The Ballroom also benefits from the provision of a licensed bar.

Chapel

The beautiful CofE St Andrew's Church is located nearby in the park, and is part of the Reigate Deanery. Religious ceremonies can be held here - just get in touch with the Gatton Hall events team, who can direct you to the Reverend at the Church, who'll be able to advise whether you can hold your ceremony there!

What our customers say

  • Mr and Mrs Grabauskas

    We got married here and the wedding service was at a local church then onto the reception at Gatton Hall. As soon as our guests arrived drinks were served and everyone was well looked after including ourselves. Even though we had over run with pictures at the church the staff were on hand to still make everything run smoothly the food was stunning having not tried before the wedding I was amazed. The view was what caught our eye when we booked and we have some stunning pictures because of it. Thank you Gatton Hall and all your staff for making our day so memorable for all.
