Kent, TN15 0RP
Magnificent English country house and 1,000 acre park in west Kent.
Sitting proudly within Kent’s last medieval deer park, visitors to Knole can Immerse themselves in the vast estate and follow in the footsteps of tourists who have visited Knole’s showrooms for 400 years
Originally built as an archbishop’s palace, the estate passed through royalty to the Sackville family, who still live here today.
Inside the showrooms, visitors can find works by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Van Dyck, among others. There are also 17th-century tapestries and furniture that make the collection internationally significant.
Knole is in the midst of a large conservation project, in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund. Five of the showrooms have reopened, but visitors should be aware that the rest of the showrooms will be closed in 2018 so that specialist conservation work can take place. The showrooms will reopen fully in spring 2019.
