Frequently Asked Questions


Do I have to buy a ticket online?

Yes. To ensure that everyone who attends can have a lovely, safe day, this year we are pre-selling tickets online.

Can I bring my children?

Please be aware that the Christmas Fair is curated with shopping in mind, there are no activities for children on the day and Father Christmas isn’t here. He is coming to our Victorian Christmas event in December. If you would like to bring your children tickets cost £1 for children aged 5 - 13 years.

Can I bring a pushchair?

If you are bringing children to the Christmas Fair, please no pushchairs or prams, we just don’t have the room to accomodate them.

Can I bring my dog?

Not today please. We do love dogs and at many events like our Country Fair we actively encourage you to bring them along to enter our Dog Show, but not today please.

Is there a cash machine?

Due to our rural setting there is no cash machine on site or nearby. Some stall holders may have card machines for payments but for ease and speed we highly recommend bringing cash.

Where can I park?

The Castle will have limited free parking in our car park and on the North Lawn during this event.

Do you charge for parking?

We don’t charge for parking but we do have an honesty box in the car park where we welcome donations for the upkeep of the grounds. We are a charity that receives no public funding so all pennies are very welcome.

Can I get to the Castle by public transport?

If you are travelling to us by train, our closest stations are Penshurst, Cowden, Edenbridge, Hildenborough, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge. Do make sure you book a taxi ahead of time as not all of these stations have permanent taxi ranks.

Is there disabled access?

Yes, disabled parking is available and the Castle can be accessible via ramp. Please be aware that as an historic house, sadly there are some rooms that are not accessible by wheelchair. This does mean that some stalls on the first floor will not be accessible as we do not have a lift.
