Our tithe barn will become a conservation studio

The next five years at Knole

The Heritage Lottery Funded 'Inspired by Knole' project is incredibly exciting.  Our landmark five year project will repair and conserve Knole. Throughout the project we will be opening new spaces and sharing Knole's unique heritage with our visitors.  

Conservation Studio

This barn will become the centre for conservation at Knole

The old tithe barn will be transformed into a conservation studio, open to the public. Here you will be able to see pieces from our collection being conserved and talk to the conservators on site.

The Hayloft

Inside the old haylofts at Knole we will pass on our heritage skills

Next door, in the old hayloft, we will promote heritage skills and crafts through a variety of hands-on courses and reach out to more people in the community by offering workshops and talks.

Brewhouse Tearoom

A tasty snack

Our Brewhouse Tearoom will be rebuilt to serve more visitors in greater comfort and create upper floors in our Brewhouse Yard. 

New rooms at Knole

The retainers gallery at Knole, Sevenoaks, Kent

The attic and tower rooms of Knole are waiting to be opened to the public. We are working out the best way to show these spaces to our visitors.

Working at Knole

Come and play a part in the future of Knole

Come and play a part in the future of Knole

Part of our mission will be to recruit many more volunteers to help us with our work over the next ten years. Because we will be opening new spaces, running training courses and working more closely with our community we will have many new, rewarding and unusual opportunities here at Knole.

Knole and Sevenoaks

We want Knole to play a bigger part in the life of Sevenoaks. We want to help you enjoy a day out with us, whether in the park or house, and we're working hard to find out what we can do for you, our community.
