Such a beautiful place to see, got to be one of the best places in the Kent countryside. The beautiful surroundings make it great for stroll on a nice summers day , such a beautiful castle and ideal for weddings. Don't think you can get bored revisiting, plenty to do and see.

Penshurst is surprisingly good. I was just coming to the end of an art history degree, and was surprised at how good the collection of portraits were. i am also interested in costume design, so was pleased to see a few costumes on display from a film made at Penshurst. There is also a children's toy museum, and lots of... More

The gardens are great fun for a little one to have a run about in, and play hide and seek, there are a few ponds to watch out for when they are near. The farmers market on the first Saturday of the month is the best one in the area. We took little one to see Father Christmas which was... More

There are some really interesting & well laid out gardens here - they are affiliated to the RHS so this should be expected. As well as formal beds there are walled gardens, topiary, bedding & trees galore. Excellent for autumn colour - my favourite was the huge Ginkgo up against the castle which was glowing. There is plenty to see... More

We got there nice and early and were allowed in the grounds so the boys can play on the climbing frames etc.... Nearer the time we went to the tent and there were plenty of activities to do before...

This is our local haunt and by far our favorite place in the South East. We came to the Narnia grotto last year and there were a few kinks but all in all it was so much nicer than anything else going. Several friends came down from London, traveling well over an hour and they thought it was so worth... More

We arrived at Penshurst after a complicated morning. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They managed to change our 2 separate appointments into 1 and talked us through the various events on offer. We enjoyed an almost empty adventure playground and did some of the Narnia quiz! My daughter loved the face painting in the activity tent and both... More

a beautiful setting and building. Really recommend the farmers market on the first Saturday of each month. Be warned times 09.00 and closes 12.00. Really good fresh local produce The house is very worth a visit and is open all day, nice tea rooms and snack bar
