    Our history Eastbury Manor House is a magnificent Grade I listed Tudor manor house, set in tranquil gardens. The house was built by Clement Sisley during the reign of Elizabeth I. It was originally in an isolated position, on rising ground with views of the Thames across marshland to the south.

    During the earlier part of its history, the house was known as Eastbury Hall and it was home to a number of Gentry families. By the 19th century Eastbury was inhabited by a succession of tenants such as yeoman farmers, butchers and graziers who bred cattle on the rich marshland pasture before selling them in the London markets.

    The house gradually fell into decay until it was purchased by the National Trust in 1918. Barking Borough Council took over the lease of the property in 1934 following restoration, and from 1935 to 1941 it was the local museum for Barking.

    Eastbury Manor House was recently refurbished with the help of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and now forms part of the Borough’s Heritage Services. Eastbury is set within attractive grounds with a secluded inner courtyard, summer herb garden and private walled garden. The Manor House and Gardens provide an historic setting for your civil ceremony or special celebration.

    Civil ceremonies and partnerships Celebrating a commitment to a loved one is a wonderful occasion and we look forward to helping you arrange your ceremony. Civil ceremonies Civil ceremonies offer the chance for you to get married without the religious connotations of a church wedding. This ceremony is for both opposite and same sex couples. For your special day you will need to book the Superintendent Registrar to conduct the ceremony. This will incur an additional cost to the hire of Eastbury Manor House. Please ensure you do this before booking our venue. For further information about civil ceremonies and the legal requirements please refer to: https://www.lbbd.gov.uk/residents/births-marriages-deaths-and-nationality/marriages-and- civil-partnerships/how-to-give-notice-to-marry/

    Civil partnerships Same sex couples can also celebrate their registration with family and friends at a ceremony conducted by a Celebrant. For your special day you will need to book the Superintendent Registrar to conduct the ceremony, which will incur an additional cost to the hire of Eastbury Manor House. Please ensure you do this before booking our venue. For further information about the difference between a civil partnership and a marriage please refer to: www.gov.uk/government/publications/comparison-of-civil-partnership-and-marriage-for-same-sex-couples The Ceremony The civil or celebratory ceremony lasts 30 minutes and can include non-religious readings, and, or, music. Prior to the ceremony the couple is interviewed by the Registrars to ensure that all the details of the couple are correct. You can either make a ‘grand’ entrance for the ceremony or walk in with the Registrars, as your guests will be seated and ready for your arrival.
