The park at Knole 

Knole’s car park and other facilities remain closed following current guidance for coronavirus. There is still access to Lord Sackville’s Knole Park via the many pedestrian gates.

The nearest parking is in Sevenoaks town centre, around ten minute walk away, including the Sevenoaks town centre car park (Sat nav postcode TN13 1LW).

We’re asking everyone to follow government guidance to support social distancing and avoid creating hotspots. Take extra care to respect local residents and other visitors. Please take your litter home with you.
