Sevenoaks, Kent, TN15 0RP
A fabulous chance to see this former archbishops' palace, Tudor hunting ground and treasure house of the nation before the start of a major project to open up its heritage for everybody. See royal beds, chairs (and even a royal loo) in our wonderful galleries and grand rooms; type out a message on the old typewriter in our new Estate Office; see Sevenoaks in Pictures in our latest Orangery exhibition; find out about our history in the visitor centre or the wildlife park in the Park Experience Room - and don't forget the thousand acres of medieval deer park to play in! Fun things to do in the Estate Office; house trails and special courtyard book; children's discovery cubes inside the showrooms; family-friendly map of the estate; activities, puzzles and games in the Park Experience Room; guided park walks; satchels you can borrow containing park discovery tools; children's meals in the Brewhouse Tearoom; pocket-money toys in the shop.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
