The Visitor Centre has a tea shop which serves home-made cakes, tea, coffee and light lunches, as well as a gift shop which sells a selection of quality gifts and a well stocked plant centre.
There is something to appeal throughout the year from snowdrop time to late autumn colour, and often there is a self guided walk sheet available to highlight the most interesting vistas and plants.
Historic town of Coggeshall
There are two hundred acres of gardens and arboretum with a tree collection representing all the continents of the world. An easy walk from the Visitor Centre is the stunningly redesigned Walled Garden. The five individual gardens within seventeenth century walls combine the best of contemporary and traditional. The double long border is the longest in East Anglia and includes both long established shrubs and interesting new plantings.
The site has been restored from dereliction in the 1970s. The Walled garden re-opened in 2003. Marks Hall also has one of the largest collections of Wollemi Pine groves in Europe.
