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 October 2018
As the Autumn season sets in our 11 acres of formal gardens transform into a sea of golden tones and auburn hues. Our Apple and Pear trees are now heavy with fruit which will soon be picked for the house, Garden Restaurant and Porcupine Pantry. The George Carter Walk, Jubilee Walk, Rose Garden and Blue Blue & Yellow border are displaying bright colour this season, whilst Church Terrace and the Arboretum are becoming noticeably autumnal making this the perfect time of year to tread along the Woodland Trail where you'll be able to collect conkers and horse chestnuts! Our pumpkins that have been grown in the garden nursery are especially large this year, and we'll be displaying our favourites throughout the estate ahead of our Halloween events later on this month!
