Historic House / Palace
Set in the beautiful Weald of Kent Penshurst Place and the Estate have stood on the banks of the river Medway since the 14th century, when the awe-inspiring medieval Baron's Hall was built as a country retreat for the Lord Mayor of London, Sir John de Pulteney. The Baron's Hall, crowned by an original 60ft high chestnut beamed ceiling, is the jewel in Penshurst Place's crown, and an unmissable sight for visitors to the ancestral home of the Sidney family.
Used as a hunting lodge for King Henry VIII, Penshurst Place has a unique place in history. The house was gifted to the Sidney Family in 1552 by Edward VI, and it has remained in their safe hands ever since, making it one of the oldest family-owned estates in England.
Step into the centuries old house and discover an abundance of beautiful staterooms, all containing a collection of historic tapestries, portraiture and furniture, showing the house as it may have looked in centuries gone by.
The formal gardens of Penshurst Place are some of the oldest still in private ownership, with the earliest records dating back to 1346. Visitors to the 11 acres of formal Tudor gardens can delight in 11 distinctive garden rooms, with many featuring concealed entrances and hidden paths to explore. Each garden room is planted in a different style of form and texture, which will no doubt awaken the horticulturist within you. A short walk from the Gardens, visitors will find a large and inviting Adventure Playground, Woodland Trail, Gift Shop and in the summer, a Maize Maze!
Penshurst Place is a warm and welcoming historic family home, with a unique character felt by all who visit.
