The county of Essex lies north-east of London and touches England’s east coast. The county, which is infamous for the accents of its inhabitants, is one of the most affluent in the country and as a result has some of the nicest event venues. The type of event and entertainment on offer really does make or break a party/wedding/corporate function.
Kings Oak Hotel – Ironically, this is not operating as a hotel as yet but is looking to complete a refurbishment project in 2014 which will open some guest rooms. However, do not let this put you off! This glamorous event location can cater for between 30 and 450 guests for weddings, parties and corporate events. There is a choice of 5 function rooms which are plush and opulently decorated; the TOWIE cast often shoot on these premises. There is even a pool and outside BBQ area for all of your summer gatherings!
Layer Marney Tower – For a more traditional setting, why not try Layer Marney Tower, England’s tallest Tudor gatehouse. You can explore the tower itself, the gardens and even on-site farm. There is a play area to keep the children amused too. The beautiful Tudor interior makes a fantastic backdrop for any wedding or event. The largest room can hold up to 140 guests, but smaller rooms are available should you require them.
The Lawn – This Georgian mansion is set in acres of manicured land and has a very impressive fountain outside the front of the building to greet guests as they continue up the drive. This is a lovely wedding venue due to the picturesque grounds and immaculate interiors; it can hold up to 150 guests for a wedding breakfast.
There are many different and spectacular venues in Essex where you can hold a fantastic party, meeting or wedding. Alongside the venue, the entertainment that you choose will make or break the ambience of the event. Having an Essex Magician at your event is a brilliant idea; this is because it is something a bit out of the ordinary and will make your event one to remember. An Essex Magician will entertain your guests at the bar, during dinner and during the evening celebrations so there is never a dull moment!
