Relax on the rooftop terrace

PLEASE NOTE: The roof terrace is currently closed.

With more than 1,000 acres of parkland and home to a wild deer herd, Knole’s estate offers many beautiful views. One of the best vistas can be enjoyed from the Brewhouse Café’s rooftop terrace, where you can take in the views while enjoying a leisurely lunch or simply sit and watch the deer go by with a glass of your favourite drink.

Picnic in the park

Don't forget there is also our dedicated picnic area for you to take your takeaways, just a short walk from the Brewhouse Café. Why not supplement your picnic with a warming hot chocolate or a cooling ice cream?

Visitors are always welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy at Knole, although we recommend you use this dedicated area and not the general park to avoid being interrupted by the deer. Please do not feed the deer if they approach you at anytime whilst visiting Knole.
