Saw the garden 10 years ago and it was wonderful. The wider views and grounds are still spectacular, but what has gone wrong? The formal gardens have all but disappeared. So much seems given over to "meadow planting" and thus gives it an unkempt, untidy...More

The gardens here are absolutely stunning and maintained by a clearly passionate army of gardeners. The views from the tower are fantastic too. Unfortunately it was incredibly busy when we visited (4 coaches were parked when we arrived just after 11) so our enjoyment of...More

Our first visit to the location in a beautiful part of Kent. Parking close to the castle and visitors centre. We went on one of the recommended walks first and then looped back to the Castle itself. Was one of those glorious early Summer Days...More

Yes, and it's lovely and worth the visit in my opinion. Open every day but closed in June. You request your timed ticket when paying the entry at the ticket office. Be aware that Sissinghurst is very popular and can get busy... More
