Love's Victory at Penshurst Place

In 1617 Lady Mary Wroth wrote 'Love's Victory', a play which traces the story of the star-crossed lovers Musella and Phillisses. 400 years later it is being performed here at Lady Mary Wroth's family home in the Baron's Hall - the room many believe Lady Mary Wroth had always envisioned the play being performed in when she wrote it. Join us on the 16th September to see the first full performance of her comedic drama for the very first time at Penshurst Place, and enjoy the words of the first female writer to establish an enduring reputation.

The gardens are well worth the stroll and I suggest you allow yourself a half day minimum. The cafe is well stocked and ...


Beautiful historic house with amazing gardens, an adventure playground, a maize maze, and great crafts and falconry displays on school holiday Sundays. The pantry cafe is delicious. Make sure to feed the chickens, explore Diana's fountain and the flag garden and generally roam around watching the kids explore and enjoy the outdoors...


Loved it. Fab for families. Loads to see and do. Take a picnic on a sunny day and enjoy it. Loads of space to sit the day away. Fantastic gardens and lovely house.
