Space and Tranquility

It’s an incredibly special place for anyone to visit, and but for those who have lost a loved one, Painshill offers something very memorable. It has all the space and tranquillity needed for peaceful reflection, whether taking a walk among the trees or sitting quietly by the lake.

Family and friends can take some comfort from this wonderful location together at a difficult time, as well as helping to support a small, independent charity. Funds from venue hire help preserve the historic landscape for generations to come.
