Penshurst Place and Gardens online: information and bookings

Penshurst Place is one of England's finest houses set in the Weald of Kent's peaceful landscape.

Built of local sandstone, the mediaeval house with its magnificent Barons Hall dates from 1341 and is one of the finest examples of 14th century architecture. Later additions have seen Penshurst Place grow into an imposing defended manor house, containing storerooms filled with a remarkable collection of tapestries, paintings, furniture, porcelain and armour.

The ten acres of garden at Penshurst Place retain the original terraces and walls of the 16th century laid out by Sir Henry Sidney. The individual garden rooms were created in the 19th century by planting a mile of yew hedge, Designed to be a garden for all seasons, visitors can enjoy a feast of colour and beauty from spring through to autumn.

Children can visit the Toy Museum then let off steam in the Venture Playground and Woodland Trail or enjoy the many events occurring throughout the season.
