If you’re struggling to find stuff to do on the weekends now that the colder weather is creeping in , fear not, we have a suggestion for you. Sissinghurst castle is putting on daily winter tours around their stunning estate, embrace the seasonal weather, learn about the people, history and the opportunity to answer as many questions to the guides as you can think of.
Sissinghurst castle spent some time in the 1700’s as a prison and later becoming home to the women’s land army. It was home to many fascinating families and people. The winter tours take you around the ruined architecture as well as the extensive original buildings. Plus there is an amazing view from the top of the tower including the working farm and 450-acre wider estate.
If you love history and literature this really is a great place to visit. Towards the end of the month 29th and 30th of November, you can tie your visit in with the festive market. Alternatively explore the lakes on the various walks around the estate. Borrow a pair of binoculars from Visitor Reception, by the Plain. Stop off at the bird hide and watch the comings and goings of the various species of birds.
Most importantly, don’t forget your Wellies!
