About Basildon Park

This striking 18th-century Palladian mansion set in extensive parkland, creates an imposing yet intimate venue for special occasions.

Basildon Park was built between 1776 and 1783 and was the home of Sir Francis Sykes, a man who had made his fortune in India. Today Basildon illustrates the high life of the 18th century and was used as a location in the 2005 feature film adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic ‘Pride and Prejudice’.

The suite of perfectly restored rooms which were intended for the great entertainments of country house life provides a unique historical setting for your special day. Basildon Park is the perfect location for your ceremony, followed by drinks on the lawns and a marquee reception.

The parkland and gardens provide unique photograph opportunities along with a team of experienced event organisers and designers to make your day run as smooth as possible.
