Walks around Knole Park

Guided walks in the park

The vast expanse of Knole's parkland lends itself to a host of outdoor activities. It's a place for all ages and abilities and is very popular with cyclists, runners and of course, walkers.

Knole to Ightham

Did you know you can visit two of England’s most important historic houses on a 4-mile, almost straight route? The Greensand Way links Knole and Ightham Mote via One Tree Hill, famous for its sweeping views over the Weald of Kent.

Wooded rambles

If you'd like to discover a different area of Knole Park, try the South-West side which offers lovely wooded spots. It's great for a ramble when the weather is less than ideal as it's more sheltered from the wind and the rain.
 
The storm of 1987 left many fallen and damaged trees in our parkland, which have since merged into the landscape and look particularly atmospheric in foggy weather. In the valley pointing towards Weald Road is a pair of trees which used to be the tallest lime trees in Kent. A few years ago they blew down in opposite directions and are now probably the longest lime trees in Kent! You can walk between their huge root plates (though please don’t touch as they are a habitat for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of insects).
