Knole Park, open year-round to pedestrians, has lots to offer:
- download a walk to suit you
- join a guided walk on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 2pm.
- complete a challenge from Knole's '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4' list.
- take part in our Family Mondays and other events throughout the year.
Plan a family walk
Plan a family walk in our beautiful park and round it off with refreshments from our new temporary Outdoor Café, open 10.30am - 5pm.
The Estate Office used to be the hub from which the Knole Estate was run. It's now an oral history exhibition where you can hear for yourself the memories of people who've lived and worked at Knole in the 20th century.
Park experience room
Lots to do in a small space, just inside the main entrance to the house: hands-on activities for the family; learn more about the park, and share with us what you've seen and heard on your walks.
Right next to our visitor centre, come and enjoy our latest exhibition among the lemon trees and overlooking the walled garden. Both visitor centre and orangery are open 8 Mar - 21 Dec.
Plan your visit: about an hour
Enter the magnificent early 17th-century great hall and proceed to our three long galleries with their state rooms and royal beds. Admire the art of Reynolds and other court painters while appreciating the world's most complete set of royal Stuart furniture.
Plan your visit: 1 to 2 hours
Drop in to exhibitions in our orangery and our oral history exhibition in the former estate office. Then walk in the footsteps of those who've visited Knole in the past 200 years. Don't miss the silver furniture and rare state beds in the house before having a stroll in the beautiful deer park and visiting our Outdoor Café.
Plan your visit: a few hours
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.
Visiting on a Tuesday?
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.
