With effect from the 1st April 2016 changes are being made to the management of Danson House. Due to the substantial financial pressures being faced by the London Borough of Bexley, its grant to Bexley Heritage Trust is being withdrawn from 2016. This has required the Trust to review its commitments, resulting in a decision to withdraw from the management of the house. The London Borough of Bexley will be taking over responsibility for Danson House and is making arrangements to move the borough’s Register Office to Danson House from Sidcup Manor House.

If you have a wedding booked at Danson House, then please be assured, that your ceremony can still take place at Danson House. We have contacted you by letter or by phone. If you have not heard from us and you have any queries please contact Lynda Weaver on 01322 621233

If you are interested in getting married at Danson House please contact Sharon Birch, Registration & Nationality Manager, on 03000 414003 or at

Danson House is an important part of the borough’s heritage and it is intended that the house will still be available to the general viewing public on selected days. Opening days and times can be found by contacting Sharon Birch, Registration & Nationality Manager, on 03000 414003 or at

Protecting the borough’s heritage is one of the core aims of Bexley Heritage Trust and the decision to hand back Danson House has been an extremely difficult one. However the decision to withdraw from the management of the house will ensure the Trust can concentrate on Hall Place & Gardens and offer Danson House a secure future.


Bexley Heritage Trust is a registered charity. We need your support to keep Hall Place & Gardens open for the enjoyment of all.

We rely on the generosity of individuals, trusts and foundations to maintain and develop the house and gardens.
