Lullingstone Castle is one of England’s oldest family estates, dating back to the time of Domesday.

The present Manor House and Gatehouse were built in 1497 and have been home to the same family ever since. Both Henry VIII and Queen Anne are known to have been regular visitors.
Where cutting edge horticulture meets plant heritage thanks to a nine month kidnap ordeal in Colombia in 2000.

Tom Hart Dyke’s innovative World Garden, laid out in the shape of a map of the World, pays tribute to the plant hunters of old and brings horticulture bang up to date with its daring plan to grow exotic blooms, outside, in the Garden of England.
