Make the most of your visit!
Discover how to get the most out of your visit to Penshurst Place with our handy guides below! Whether you're looking to learn more about what's on for kids, the best time to visit for our garden displays, or you're wondering how much time you'll need, we've got the information below. Happy exploring!
New for 2018, we've upgraded our playground with the addition of a 30 metre zipline swing, and a medieval style fort - perfect for playing Kings and Queens in! We'll be adding to the fort over the coming years to create an all-round medieval stately home experience!
A short walk from the playground lies our Woodland Trail; over the winter season the gardeners have been hard at work clearing pathways, creating new places to explore, and adding a new route through the woodland. Dotted along the way you'll find natural play equipment, quiet areas, seating, and of course, our brilliant den making area!
What should I see when I visit?
Whether you're flying by for a quick visit, or have the whole day, you'll still be able to enjoy Place & Gardens!
What are the new seasonal highlights?
Written as of 3rd September 2018
With the hot summer beginning to peter out, the Blue and Yellow Border continues to showcase swathes of colour, fragrance, and pollen for the bees. The Orchard, and Apple Trees found along the Jubilee Walk and Coronation Walk are now bursting with fruits which will soon be ready to pick. The Rose Garden is still in flower, with the pink and red varieties the most striking during this season.
Elsewhere, the water lilies are thriving in Diana's Bath, a short distance from the Paved Garden which offers a shady spot for a sit down during your garden stroll.
