You'll have time to explore the deer park on your own or with one of our downloadable walks. There's time for a picnic or a visit to our tea-room, before exploring Knole's courtyards, visitor centre, orangery, estate office and grand showrooms. To help you plan, here's what's in our collection.

Open on Tuesdays in 2014: 11am-4pm, 1 April - 30 September.

When you visit Lord Sackville's private walled garden, you'll go back through centuries in garden history and design. In its 26 acres, you can explore an unbroken green alley running around the Kentish ragstone walls, probably the longest in the country.
