Knole House, Sevenoaks CANCELLED
Thursday 30 April 2020

Knole is one of the most important historic houses in Britain. It has passed through the hands of archbishops, kings and many generations of the Sackville family. The house is set in an historic deer park and covers a large area, with many courtyards, historic Tower rooms, a Conservation Studio and the magnificent recently restored Showrooms, which contain a treasure trove of artworks, period furniture and artefacts.

We shall travel from Chichester by coach (c 2 hours) and on arrival have a guided tour of the exterior of the house to give its background and history. A light lunch has been arranged for all in a private room after which you will be able to tour the Showrooms, Tower, Conservation Studio (if open) and grounds on your own. (Audio guides available).

The house is owned by the National Trust and NT members will have free admission, though there will be costs for travel and food.

We plan to depart Knole at approx. 3.00pm. 

Please note that a) in order to give plenty of time at Knole, the originally planned stop at Emmetts Garden has been postponed to another time and b) that Knole covers a large area and there will be a certain amount of walking, with stairs.
