Tickets £36.00pp and include a two hour all-terrain guided walking tour, a two-course roast lunch in our private banqueting room, and tickets to the formal gardens and historic house.

With a rich history dating to the 14th century, Penshurst Place is one of the oldest family-owned country estates in England, this October we invite you to join us for a guided tour of the Penshurst Place Estate in its Autumn splendor, followed by a delicious two-course roast lunch in our private banqueting room. Your tickets also include access to the formal gardens and historic house at Penshurst Place, which we would encourage you to explore after your meal. 

Your guided all-terrain walk will be led by General Manager of the Penshurst Place Estate, Ben Thomas, who will describe the history of agriculture and farming that has helped the Penshurst Place Estate remain a thriving enterprise. You'll also learn more about the wildlife that make their home on the estate, the work we do to care for it, and how we are protecting this ancient estate for future generations.

After your walk, retire to the private Sunderland Room which is never open to the public, and enjoy a two-course roast lunch surrounded by portraiture and the sounds of our crackling fire. The perfect way to enjoy an Autumn day out.

Please note, the walk will take approximately 2 hours and covers a variety of terrains and steep inclines. Suitable shoes, coats and waterproof clothing are necessary.
