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.
