Although the Hall was built between 1543 and 1547, the earliest recorded image of the gardens is an engraving dating from 1705, showing a formal, Dutch-style garden to the north and east of the Hall.
This garden was replaced by the prevailing trend for naturalistic parkland and in 1756, Lancelot Capability Brown was employed to create a fashionable and yet stunning landscaped gardens complete with water features.
Today Madingley Hall still retains many of the original period features, making this a truly striking venue both inside and out.
The Madingley Hall Wedding Fair is open from 11.00am - 3.30pm with two great and unique fashion shows at 12.30pm and 2.30pm on our signature catwalk. The fashion show features some of the very latest bridal gowns.
In addition, leading inspirational exhibitors from the local area and beyond will be exhibiting to offer advice. There are some wonderful entertainers too, including a harpist, singer, magicians and so much more beside.

We look forward to meeting you.
