Walk Details

This short and varied walk explores the grounds of the National Trust’s Sissinghurst Castle in Kent – a historic, poetic and iconic estate with a world-renowned garden.

Sissinghurst is a beautiful place to come no matter what time of year, but the daffodils are stunning in spring. After your walk you can also get a ticket to explore the gardens.

Discover the highlights of the 450-acre wider estate with this walk. Look out for the gazebo in the corner of the garden by the moat, which looks out over the estate and wider Wealden countryside.

It was built as a memorial to Harold Nicolson (diplomat, author and politician and husband of writer Vita Sackville-West) and was used by his son, Nigel Nicolson, as a writing room.

As well as its fascinating history, Sissington Castle is a beautiful and varied place to walk. Don’t miss the panoramic views from the top of the tower, pay a visit to the working farm, and explore the 450 acres that make up the winder estate.
