Penshurst Place and Gardens, Kent

Stately Homes and Castles in Kent and Sussex

The history of the Garden of England can often be found reflected in its landscape and in the many beautiful and important buildings dotting the countryside. Grand stately homes such as Hever Castle -  the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, Penshurst Place - the family seat of the Sidneys for the last 450 years, at enchanting Leeds Castle and at Chartwell, the country retreat of the great statesman Sir Winston Churchill. These are just some of the finest examples of stately homes in Kent.

The history of Tonbridge Castle stretches back 900 years - its gatehouse makes it one of the most interesting castles in England. The area also has its fair share of National Trust properties in the South East, such as Knole in Sevenoaks, Ightham Mote, the fairytale-like Bodiam Castle and Quebec House in Westerham.
