Winter at Sissinghurst Castle Garden

While our tower and formal gardens take a rest for winter conservation there's still plenty to see and do during your visit here. With estate walks, lunches in the restaurant, exhibitions and tours of the south cottage, there's plenty for all the family to enjoy.

The tower conservation project taking shape

Tower conservation 

From 9 October 2017, the tower will be closed so that we can embark on a six month conservation project to repair, conserve and protect it for future generations to enjoy. Find out what the work entails.
