A Photographers & Visitors Guide & Timeless Stories

Elegant Danson House and Park

20 pics – Danson House and park are near Bexley Heath just a few miles east of London.  The park includes a boating lake with rowing boats for hire, a water-sports center, the Danson Stables public house/restaurant, a very well equipped children’s play area and the elegant interiors of Danson House where photography is allowed.

The house includes very pleasant tea rooms, a spiral staircase, three very ornate rooms on the first floor and an exhibition on the second floor.  During my visit the exhibition was of beds.

The house was originally built in 1766 and the paintings are from that period.  Refurbished and opened by the present queen in 2005.

Unfortunately the opening times are limited. Please see the Danson House website.   Very near is Hall Place with extensive grounds and is also worth a visit.

  3. I’m having a tough time choosing a favorite: the library or the stairs. Okay, I’ll be a good mom and not choose favorites 😉

    • It’s just occurred to me that the organ must have reverberated through the house. I hope they played gentle ditties. 🙂

      The thing about inanimate favorites is that you can always choose another one tomorrow. 🙂

    • Yes, really impressive. There are quite a few such houses, unfortunately photography is not allowed in all of them. Hats off to Hall Place and Danson House who make photographers very welcome. 🙂

  5. Nothing more annoying than places that don’t allow photography 😛
    So much gilt in Danson House. The cellar looks like my kind of place 🙂
