Sissinghurst Castle

Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens

Built in the 16 century, Sissinghurst Castle is a moated Tudor house that was left to fall into disrepair. Then, in 1930 Vita Sackville-West and her husband Harold Nicolson took over what was left of the building, and over the years they lovingly restored the house and the gardens. Sissinghurst Castle is now world-renowned for its gardens, that are not to be missed at any time of the year. Here you will see the famous series of small, enclosed gardens, each with its own colour scheme.

In the grounds can be seen the Oast House (with exhibition) and the Elizabethan Barn.

Sissinghurst Castle and the garden in the Weald of Kent, is owned and maintained by the National Trust.
