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 April to October.

Closure of Chiddigstone Castle & Grounds

Owing to Coronavirus we have not been able to open for our 2020 season and now need to close the grounds and fishing in line with the governments stated lockdown policy.  However, if you would like to enquire about a wedding please contact Natalie on

The castle and grounds, tea rooms and shop 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 rebook you as soon as we are able. 

We wish you all well and look forward to seeing you later in the year

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, through the Ancient Egyptian inspired grass maze and over to the Victorian Orangery. Stop for refreshments in our Tea Room, and then finish your day with a visit to the Gift Shop or our Antiques and second hand bookshop.

“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
