Lord Sackville's garden

Lord Sackville's private garden at Knole is a magical space, featuring sprawling lawns, a walled garden, an untamed wilderness area and a medieval orchard.

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

The doors of Knole's Orangery open to reveal the secluded lawns of the 26 acre garden, which has existed since the fifteenth century.

Highlights include views of the south front of the house, and the meandering paths and wild flowers of the wilderness area. In spring, visitors are treated to a glorious display of purple wisteria on the garden's western wall.

Last entry 3.30pm.

Entry to Lord Sackville's garden is included with a property admission ticket.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

Entry to the park, courtyards and conservation studio is free for everyone.
