What's on this year?

Guided walks in our woodland

Our busy events' programme includes everything from walks and talks, to a rose care workshop and guided winter tours.

Get into the festive spirit with a visit to our gift shop for all your Christmas essentials.

Go green with our next garden workshop, a free estate walk, our popular hedge-laying course or even learn how to make a bird box.

Take a look at what's coming up.

Wellies at the ready

A family out enjoying the autumn colour

Thursday 1 January, 11am-12.30pm Our estate walks are a great way to enjoy the fresh air. On New Year's Day grab your wellies and join our volunteer Tony, for a free walk to learn about the flora and fauna of our 450-acre countryside.

After all that exercise and before you go home, why not pop into our Old Dairy for a light snack, or a cup of tea and some cake?

Winter tours

1 November to 8 March 11am-3pm.  Our formal gardens need a well deserved rest over the winter months, so these tours are your chance to get to know a different side of Sissinghurst Castle. The tours run on the hour from 11am-3pm, with the last tour at 3pm. There’s no need to book, and normal admission applies. Please meet at the Old Dairy coffee shop

Budding birder?

Make your own bird feeder with our rangers

Wednesday and Thursday, 18 and 19 Feb, 1pm.
Our rangers will show you how to build your own nest boxes and bird feeders for your garden that you can take home for your feathered friends.
