Historic Site
Explore the 365-room house and surrounding deer park at Knole. According to the National Trust, this mansion may have been a "calendar house," built with 365 rooms, 52 staircases, 12 entrances, and 7 courtyards. In the old estate office, listen to interviews with servants, residents, and conservation workers. Approach some of the 500 deer--descendants of the same deer herd hunted by Henry VIII, a prior resident of the house--wandering the 405 hectare (1,000 acre) park.

  • Didn't have time to do the house, but will definitely come again if we're in the area. Lovely sunny day doing a very well organised Cadbury Egg hunt (£3 per child). The surrounding park land with free...  more »
  • One of our favourite walking places, we recently took our nephews here who are 9 & 10 and they really enjoyed the Easter egg hunt, photographing the deers and general exploring and tree climbing.  more »

  • Beautiful house set in lovely deer park. Some stunning artwork and interesting rooms but probably not for young children. The deer park is great with long walks through the woodland and grassland along well maintained paths.
  • Knole Park Grounds are fantastic. Vast and beautiful, the woodlands offers a fantastic, long and scenic walk where you might even encounter a deer or two. It's quite a long walk so might not recommend if you have small children. But do takes the kids on their bikes. I used to love that as a child.
  • Beautiful grounds where deer walk around freely and barely even notice if you get up close. Didn't go inside the house but it looked impressive from the outside. Dogs must be kept on leads (which makes sense with deer all over the place) but it is a great place to walk the dog none the less.
  • Vast grounds that are great for exploring with kids; lots of deer around as well. We enjoyed the house as well which is well maintained and plenty of volunteers on hand to explain things. The house wasn't much fun for the kids though (aged 2 and 4) so we rushed the last part.
  • Fabulous afternoon spent at this magnificent National Trust beauty ... next time we shall arrive early and bring a picnic. We'll tour the house in the morning and watch the deer whilst walking our lunch off in the afternoon. A photographers dream location.
