Visit us

We welcome guests to discover the historic house, collection and tea room with friends, family or as part of a school or group visit from August to October 2020.

Plan your visit

You could start your visit at the North Door and learn about Denys Eyre Bower, his collections and the history of Chiddingstone Castle as you explore the historic house. Take a short walk around the grounds, across the lawns and through the woodlands and over to the Victorian Orangery. Stop for refreshments at our Tea Room Take-away.

“A unique collection in a wonderful setting which must remain. The most lovely and relaxing day - friendly staff and beautiful woodland walks.”
Mr B, Chichester
