Gardens Only

Garden Tour

A private guided tour can help make your school visit to Penshurst Place & Gardens a truly memorable one. Discover the heraldry and symbols dotted around the Gardens and find out why our Gardens are split into different ‘rooms’. The Garden tour option provides you with a guided tour of the Gardens as well as non-guided access to our Woodland Trail and Adventure Playground. Guided tours of the Garden are available to book during normal opening hours or before the Grounds are open to the public. The tour takes approximately an hour. We also offer this tour in foreign languages.

Gardens Free-Flow

A free-flow visit to the Gardens provides the perfect place to study the Natural Sciences, where there is a wide variety of plants including an ancient ginkgo biloba tree, orchards and signs of much biodiversity to discover. Wander further afield and visit the Arboretum and Woodland Trail which features information panels about this ancient coppiced woodland and is a perfect place for younger pupils to enjoy a Nature Hunt or Den Building. At around 50 acres, the grounds of Penshurst Place are one of Britain’s most alluring spectacles for schools throughout the year.
