Penshurst Place is a privately-owned, historic house of medieval origin, nestled in Tudor Gardens, providing a stunning location for a wide spectrum of events. Located in the charming village of Penshurst, in countryside at the centre of the Weald of Kent, it provides a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.  The House is only 32 miles from Central London with easy links to transport hubs in the South-East of England.

Celebration of Life Services & Receptions

Our venue provides a warm and intimate setting for celebration of life services and receptions. Surrounded by over 2,500 acres of unspoilt countryside, we offer a unique tranquil location to say goodbye to a loved one, in one of our three beautiful private rooms. Our experienced events team will ensure that your wishes for the proceedings are carried out to exacting standards and will be on-hand throughout the day should you need them for anything at all.

Team Building & Outdoor Pursuits

The extensive Penshurst Place parkland is available for marquee events for up to 500 guests, or you may make use of the indoor event rooms should your party be smaller. We offer a wide range of activities to suit your event, from quad-biking and segways, to falconry, fly fishing and archery.


Baby Welcoming Services

A Baby Welcoming ceremony is a very special way of celebrating the birth or adoption of your child and welcoming the new arrival into your family. As a licensed venue, Penshurst Place can host Baby Welcoming ceremonies in any one of its delightful banqueting rooms or indeed outside in the Inner Courtyard or the Grade I listed Gardens.

Product Launches & Galas

The grandiose look of Penshurst Place has a great impact on events such as product launches, networking events and galas. Whether in the medieval surrounds of the Baron's Hall or the beautifully panelled walls of the Sunderland Room, your event or launch will be an occasion to remember.
