The award was based on environmental standards, how it’s maintained, and visitor facilities

Hall Place Gardens has been awarded Green Flag status for the 21st year in a row.

The award, now into its third decade, is a sign to the public that the space boasts the highest possible environmental standards, is well maintained and has excellent visitor facilities.

Peter Craske, cabinet member for community safety, environment and leisure, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Hall Place has received a Green Flag Award for the 21st year in a row.

“We know how much quality green spaces matter to our residents and to visitors and this award celebrates the garden team’s dedication and hard work that goes into keeping this beautiful site maintained and cultivated to a very high standard.”

It also recently received the Tripadvisor ‘Certificate of Excellence’ award.

Sitting on the banks of the River Cray, the Hall Place estate stretches some 65 hectares.

The gardens were first opened to the public in 1952 by HRH the Duchess of Kent.

Visitors to the gardens can see the famous Queen’s Beast topiary sculptures, which were planted in 1953 in celebration of the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
