Lord Sackville’s private garden is open on selected dates, revealing sprawling lawns, a walled garden, an untamed wilderness area and a medieval orchard. The garden at Knole has existed since the early fifteenth century. Highlights include rarely-seen views back to the beautiful south front of the house, the mossy meandering paths of ‘the wilderness’ and a glorious display of purple wisteria along the garden’s western wall. Self-guided tours are available (pick up a leaflet at the entrance to the garden). As this is a private garden, tended by Lord Sackville’s gardeners, seating is limited and plants are not marked.
Open Mon 28 Mar, Mon 11 Apr, Wed 27 Apr & Thurs 12 May. Last entry at 3.30pm. Pre-booking essential.
