De Vere Selsdon Estate, Croydon
Originally known as The Mansion on the Hill, the De Vere Seldon Estate is a historic property that dates back to Saxon times. Located within 204 acres of breathtaking gardens, the venue has recently been refurbished and is full of rich character. Boasting a 500-year-old Cedar tree planted by Queen Elizabeth I, De Vere Seldon Estate has a multitude of places in which to take photographs, including the grand staircase, stained-glass window and grounds.
There's also an on-site championship 18-hole par 73 golf course that takes around four-and-a-half hours to complete when walking.
