Eastbury Manor House online: information and bookings

Eastbury Manor House is a listed mansion house in Barking built by Clement Sysley, a rich Essex merchant during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The house was originally in an isolated position surrounded by marshland. In the early 1600s it attracted rich Catholic families who could practice their banned religion there in safety.

Later tenants were yeoman farmers of a much lower class, and butchers and graziers attracted by the pasture grazing and the rich London market. The house was gradually neglected and fell into decay until 1918 when it was restored by the National Trust.

Today the building stands in 1.5 acres including a walled garden. It is owned by the National Trust and managed by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

The house is an arts, heritage and community resource and hosts school visits, historical re-enactments, Family Days, evening events and civil marriage and civil partnerships ceremonies. The money from the lottery grant created a new gift shop and tea room, as well as an access lift to all floors and restoration to parts of the historic gardens.

School parties can enjoy the house under the guidance of the Eastbury Manor House educational team. For information regarding education visits on offer, please contact the Projects Co-ordinator at the address shown.

There is a book, A step back in time, available for young visitors. Become a history detective and search for evidence which tells us about Eastbury House in the past. Cost 3, available from Eastbury Manor House, Valence House and Libraries.

Eastbury Manor House is available to hire for business functions and civil marriage and civil partnerships ceremonies.
