    An amazing place to relax
    An amazing place to relax, enjoy picnic and nature the Knole house is big enough to spend couple of hours in there the entrance is £15. You have to pay for car park or you can walk, you can l enter for free the grounds if the park, this place has 4000 hectares of land… the wild animals are just friendly and adorable. If you have kids there are some playgrounds for them there is a coffee shop inside the park.

    Lovely park and house
    We went to this park on an early autumn day and we really enjoyed it. Love to see the deer roaming freely and not at all bothered by the crowd. We also visited the showroom and the tower which are very interesting. Lots of royal furniture, rooms and antiques to see. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The café can get busy but we were happy with a take away tea and brownie. It is definitely worth a visit.

    A must visit.
    This is a must visit. The park is well known for a good walk and seeing the deer and is just as gorgeous as I remember. This time we went in the house and up the tower, both of which were well worth a visit and the views from the tower were great! The volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable which enhanced our visit. The cafe also got a visit from us for a nice cuppa and cake to die for! Will definitely be back for another walk soon.

    Beautiful grounds and great seeing the deers
    Exceptional park to go for a lovely walk. The deers are great to see and sometimes will be very close to the main building. Make sure you wear walking boots as the ground can be really muddy and uneven. Although dogs are allowed, they have to be on the lead otherwise they can frighten the deer. I have been here a few times and would definitely come back. The little cafe here is cute but the prices are expensive for what you get.

We are so lucky to have this right on our doorstep, and love a visit to Knole. Booking a car parking spot at the moment is very busy. However there is a multi-story in Sevenoaks by the leisure centre, which is free on Sundays and only a 5 minute walk into the park (quite steep -so not suitable for everyone).
Apart from the off person who cant take there rubbish home! grrrr The Park is spotless, and so well kept. You can really feel like you are in the middle of the countryside with a walk around the grounds.
Plenty of choice to either stick to the paths if you have children with bikes or scooters, or venue off track along the grass paths.
Agree with some of the previous comments re feeding the deer -such a shame that people cant adhere to the signs asking for them not to be fed for there well being.
The cafe serves lovely food and can get very busy at times, but after a brisk walk nothing beats its hot chocolate.

Came here with a couple of friends just to walk round the park, and there's signs clearly stating that members park for free and non members pay £5. I'm a member but only had my partners National Trust card so was more than happy to pay £5 and stated this at the gate. Got a long lecture off the 'delightful' man at the gate saying we had to pay £15 each! It's free to walk round the park and we didn't want to go in the castle, only wanted to walk round the park and to pay parking. Pedestrians can walk in for free!! He didn't even give us a chance to speak so we didn't even argue back and were perfectly pleasant but it really ruined it for us, you don't speak to customers like that. Won't be coming back and won't renew my National Trust after the way we were spoken to. Seems other people have had the same trouble. Suggest you look into who this man was!

We came to Knole Park to celebrate my mums 70th birthday and have a picnic with about 30 people in total.
Upon arrival, we were met with a £50 bill just to Park. The prices have increased to £15 per adult and £7.50 per child and £5 per car. The entrance now includes entrance to Knole House, which none of us wanted to do but this was the rules. I get that the house needs to be looked after and the money has to come from somewhere, but not at the cost of people that want to just park and have a walk. We won't be going there again.

We have been regular visitors to Knole over many years and NT members for decades. It is a lovely place to walk and see the deer and the park is freely open to all members of the public who walk in. We were annoyed and baffled today when told our 2 daughters who are not members would have to pay the full entrance fee to enter the park as passengers in the car even though not visiting the house. They duly got out of the car at the gate and walked in for free meeting us later at the car park. What a bizarre situation!

Our first visit to Knole Park since the Covid 19 "lockdown" restrictions were lifted.

We booked a car park ticket for the park in advance, "on-line", which was very straightforward.

Greeted on arrival by courteous staff who explained what was available.

"Social distancing" is taken very seriously here and even car parking spaces are alternated !

The park is as pleasant as ever and many deer are present to enjoy.

Also, the toilet facilities are now open again.

Well worth a visit even just to walk around the park and spot the deer !

When you are walking in the grounds it is free of charge unless you have a car in which you are charged parking fee. Outdoors is free to walk around however if you wanting to go in towers they charge you £12 for one tiny tower with two bedrooms. However they market this ticket as Towers and Outdoors. Outdoors is free so they are just charging you £12 for one tower and making it sound like you get a good deal for outdoors which was already free of charge. Total rip-off was not happy. Do not support charity that scams people.

Tower itself should be only worth £5 at least not £12

Very disappointed after what could have been a lovely outing was ruined by a group of rude, snotty golfers shouting at people to get out of the way. There are no clear signs as to where the golf course is and the players are whacking balls straight at the deer running around, not sure how this is animal friendly. The few bins were overflowing and surrounded by wasps and the food in the cafe is overpriced.

as somebody who lives fairly to close to knole park and has visited countless times before, i was expecting to just pay for parking, but was told that option was not available. instead i was told we had to pay £15 per adult and £7.50 per child, plus parking. this would mean it would cost over £50 just for a dog walk. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!! clearly knole park are trying to recoup money spent on the renovations of the house. surely this is deterring potential customers that could visit the park and therefore the house is losing income. needless to say we turned around and drove elsewhere for our dog walk.

We visited on a Monday and it was, for obvious reasons, not a busy day. However, there were plenty of volunteers throughout the house. Every single one of them was very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and keen to answer any questions. I learnt such a lot with the staircase ,"Ye Olde Facebook Gallery"and the tower room being particularly fascinating. If you like History and Art, this is a great day out.

We were only here for 45 minutes but would love to return, the park is huge with some much to explore and beautifully kept. On a sunny afternoon, it was like stepping into a scene from another time, with picnicking groups dotted all over the gardens, friendly deer roaming around and the impressive Knole House overlooking all. Wow. We parked in the car park (pre-booking only) but could have walked from the town as it's not far.
