Langtons is a grade II listed 18th century house and public gardens situated in Billet Lane,Hornchurch.
The house stands in a picturesque landscaped garden with a lake, orangery, bath house and a gazebo; all dating from the eighteenth century. The house belonged to the Massu family, Huguenot refugees from France, who became wealthy silk merchants in the City of London
Langtons was given to Hornchurch Urban District Council in 1929 under the condition that the building must be used for council purposes and the six acres of grounds remain open to the public.
The gardens remain open as one of the parks in Havering. The building housed the council offices until the council was abolished in 1965 and The London Borough Havering, based in Romford, was created.
Langtons House is open for business following a major six month long refurbishment. There are two stunning rooms plus Langtons Hall available. All have been transformed during the refurbishment project and all three rooms are licenced for civil weddings and civil partnership ceremonies.
The East Room remains in wedgewood blue with two beautiful crystal chandeliers with matching wall lights and beautiful new curtains. The West Room has been decorated in gold and cream, again with stunning soft furnishings to complement the new decor. Both rooms can accommodate a maximum of 50 guests. Langtons Hall has oak panelled walls and is decorated in cream, green and gold, and can accommodate up to 100 guests seated, so is perfect for larger wedding parties.
