Weddings in the Essex countryside


Getting married at Wat Tyler Country Park means an unforgettable day in unique countryside surroundings, just off the A13 near Basildon, and 20 minutes from the M25.

Our atmospheric Heritage Barn is an intimate, warm historic space licensed for weddings, civil ceremonies and naming ceremonies.

Outside, the Village Green makes the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs, and is the perfect place for children to let off steam before your wedding breakfast.

Organise your own food  / bar in one of two purpose-built eco-friendly hire spaces accommodating up to 140 people for formal dining, and up to 250 when transformed into a dance hall for the evening.

A huge free car park and 125 acres of inspirational parkland complete the package.
