Accessibility at Knole

We work hard at Knole to provide a great experience for all of our visitors, and are constantly looking for ways to improve. The 600-year-old house presents us with challenges, but we have many measures in place that enable us to share Knole with as many people as possible. Below are some useful accessibility pointers to help you plan your visit.

Access statement

Our access statement will tell you all you need to know about accessibility across the site, including the showrooms, Gatehouse Tower, Brewhouse Cafe, conservation studio, toilets and parkland (please note that National Trust only manage 100 acres of the 1000-acre site, the rest is managed by Lord Sackville's Knole Estate.
