Glanville Hall is a historic manor built along the Semaphore shores in 1856 as a lavish family home for Captain John Hart, South Australia’s first Premier. The homestead originally consisted of 14 main rooms, a coach house, a gate keeper’s lodge and extensive grounds and stables. The servants’ quarters were tucked into a second story within the roof space, and a billiard room and elegant tower were added during extensions in 1865.
Today the opulent manor serves as a stunning backdrop to weddings and functions, wonderfully suited to this role with it’s stately architecture and close proximity to some nice photography spots such as Semaphore beach and Port Adelaide.
Cermeonies can be held outside on the Hall’s lawn, or inside, making use of the old style charm. While wedding receptions can also, with larger congregations dining outside on the lawn, and smaller fitting into Glanville Hall’s banquet room.
