Temporary Closure of Chiddingstone Castle & The Re-opening of the Grounds and Fishing Lake
Owing to Coronavirus we have not been able to open for our 2020 season but we can now re-open the Grounds and Fishing Lake in line with the governments stated lockdown policy. Whilst visiting our grounds you MUST adhere to the government guidelines on Social Distancing and stay at least 2m away from other visitors and staff. Dogs must be kept on a lead at ALL times and please clean up after them. There is a Dog Waste bin located by the car park.
If you are using our car park or grounds please remember to make the suggested donation of £2 in the honesty box, located by the main car park sign. We are charity and use any donations to help maintain the Castle and Grounds.
If you would like to enquire about a wedding please contact Natalie on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Castle, tea rooms, shop and all visitor facilities will be closed until we get the all clear to reopen but we will keep you updated here on the website and will provide more information about the events planned for this season. All tea bookings will be postponed until later this year and we will re-book you as soon as we are able.
We wish you all well and look forward to seeing you later in the year

Read more to discover the special meaning behind wisteria in Japanese culture and the story of this delicate enamel technique.
