Penshurst Place & Gardens – the home of Chivalry & Romance

A stunning award-winning venue*, set in an area of unspoilt natural beauty in Kent, Penshurst Place is medieval in origin, with the warmth and character of a much-loved family home.

Famed in particular for its stunning Tudor gardens and medieval Baron’s Hall Penshurst Place & Gardens offers a unique setting for an idyllic wedding day.

With a history spanning almost seven centuries, it has been owned by kings and noblemen and has been the ancestral seat of the Sidney family since 1552, where it has been the scene of lavish entertaining, poetic inspiration, chivalrous acts and notable historical events.
