Penshurst Place and Gardens
Described as “the grandest and most perfectly preserved example of a fortified manor house in all England”, for over 650 years Penshurst Place has been the place for poetic inspiration and lavish Royal hospitality. Once owned by Henry VIII, it has been home to the Sidney family since 1552 up to the present day.
Together with a unique medieval Baron’s Hall and staterooms, the jewel in its crown is the 11 acres of gardens, divided into a series of walled Garden rooms surrounded by yew hedging. Parkland and riverside walks also cross this ancient estate – and a cycle path from Tonbridge Castle to Penshurst Place’s doorstep – Sustrans regional route no 12.
A fun day out for all the family with time-travelling events and activities throughout the holidays, a Maze (summer only), Toy Museum, Adventure Playground and Woodland Trail, as well as the Garden Restaurant, a wonderful Gift Shop and new Café (open all year).
So if you are looking for things to do in Kent with the family and children, why not visit Penshurst Place and learn something new about our history.
