Danson House (Bexley)

Danson House is an outstanding Palladian villa at Bexley in Greater London, formerly Kent.

It is situated in Danson Park, a few minutes from the M25, and not far from Hall Place.

The house was built in 1766 by Robert Taylor, for the wealthy merchant Sir John Boyd, as a country house where Boyd and his adored wife could live happily and entertain their friends.

The impressive rooms include the Entrance Hall, Dining Room (with wall paintings by Charles Pavillon), Salon and Library.

In 1995, after being declared the most significant building at risk in London, it was restored by English Heritage and is now owned by Bexley Heritage Trust.
