Collections

From Ancient Egypt to Japan and beyond, Chiddingstone Castle is home to five impressive collections which are the lifetime’s work by one gifted collector. These collections are displayed throughout the historic house, which was his home from 1955 to 1977.

Object of the Month

A monthly series, where our Curator writes about a highlight object, chosen from one of Denys Eyre Bower’s collections.

We are thrilled to be awarded a grant as part of the government’s Culture Recovery Fund and #HereForCulture. 

The government’s Culture Recovery Fund is a part of the Here for Culture movement. #HereForCulture unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatre, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.

Online Exhibition in collaboration with The Ceramic House ‘Neither Increasing Nor Decreasing’

  As part of The Ceramic House’s ‘Interbeing’ project, a group of important established Chinese ceramic artists selected by Shanghai Academy of Fine Art are responding to objects in the Castle’s Buddhist collection with their works. The results will be available to view online between the 31st of August and the 31st of October via the following link. 

Visitors to the Castle can view the selected Buddhist objects on display and remotely view the Chinese artworks on their smartphones.
