Bourne Hall Museum
Bourne Hall, situated in the heart of Ewell Village, is a remarkable modern building of unusual architectural interest, surrounded by beautiful grounds. Opened in 1970, it is well furnished, well equipped and flexible enough to accommodate most requirements.
With a variety of different sized halls and rooms, it is perfect for anything from a small meeting to the largest of receptions. It is used for conferences, weddings and wedding receptions, fairs, recitals, meetings and parties.
The landscaped gardens, lawns and lake, with a fountain, provide a wonderful backdrop for your events and are particularly impressive for photographs.
