4.3
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.

  • Lovely day had at Knole in sevenoaks. The weather was beautiful, very hot and sunny. Had a great walk round the grounds and saw lots of deer wandering around. The food and drink was very tasty in the cafe. Loved the scones. Had a look round the house, lots of history to read about. There doing restoration work at the moment, will be brilliant when finished. All in all a great day and would recommend.
  • Great place with wild Deer that you can get up close to. Great for walking. Good coffee and food shop.
  • Hugh stately home but so much was closed for restoration (2 of 3 galleries) yet admission was full price. I understand it is closed during the off season yet the galleries were closed because the floor finishing was still drying! Poor planning.
  • One of the great things about Knole is that it is worth seeing in every season. In winter the deer look majestic cutting across snowy or frosty ground; in autumn the grounds and landscape are a riot of colour. It really is a treat to explore the park, and excellent for a picnic too. The house is also amazing, steeped in history and full of intriguing rooms, portraits and objects.
  • Recently refurbished tea and coffee room to cope better with the large number of visitors. Good coffee and a variety of tea available. Delicious cakes and other drinks for everyone.
