NEW Penshurst Place Guide Book
Penshurst Place and Gardens launched a newly published guide book in August. Written in part by Lord and Lady De L’Isle, whose family home is Penshurst Place, the full-colour guide contains 72 pages and more than 200 photographs, many of which show previously unpublished images.
There is a new garden tour written by Viscountess De L’Isle who introduces the 11-acre walled gardens that are among the oldest in private ownership. Designed to help visitors to get the best from their visit and experience every element of this wonderful garden, the book contains a garden map of each ‘outdoor room’, for reference. The guidebook also explores the lavish historical secrets and literary heritage of Penshurst Place, taking visitors through the centuries and follows the Sidney family who have been in continuous occupation of the house since 1552.
The guide is designed to be purchased on arrival to allow guests to obtain most enjoyment from their visit. Yet the stunning photography, wealth of detailed information contained within it, mean the guide will also provide a perfect memento.
The guide book is priced at £4.50 and available in print form from the gift shop and visitor entrance before your visit or the Barons Hall (as you enter the house) and the Nether Gallery (as you leave the house).
