Burkill Hall is a historic mansion within the grounds of the National Orchid Garden, in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Originally built as one of the colonial bungalows of the plantation, it was later used as the Director's House of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Burkill Hall was named after Isaac Henry Burkill and Humphrey Morrison Burkill, a father and son who both held the post of Director of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Today the house has become a popular venue for holding wedding receptions.

Burkill Hall has a compound that has been well maintained. A grove of terete orchids provide a splash of colour to the grounds.
