About Penshurst Place & Gardens

Penshurst, Tonbridge
Kent, TN11 8DG

Enclosed by acre upon acre of green hillside and nestled alongside a charming Tudor village next to the Medway and the Eden rivers, Penshurst Place is truly a unique wedding destination. Eleven acres of beautiful formal gardens surround the historic house creating a botanical crown befitting of the location.

In the spring, over 12,500 bright yellow tulips bloom in the Italian Garden, creating a photographic backdrop unlike that of any other venue, whilst the summer sees the bordered walkways and paths come to life with bright vivid colours, soft roses, irises and a myriad of beautiful bedding plants, including the spectacular 100metre Peony Border, which contains 4 varieties of soft pink Peonies -  a truly astonishing vista for your photographer to capture.

Inside, you will discover the medieval Baron’s Hall which was completed in 1341 and features a 60feet high chestnut beamed ceiling and bricked flagstone flooring. Licensed for ceremonies and receptions, this breath-taking room captures the simplicity and beauty of the medieval era allowing you to add your own personal stamp through your colour scheme and decorations for up to 200 ceremony guests, and 136 for seated dining

Upstairs lies the opulent Sunderland Room. Half wooden-panelled and half stone-walled, the Sunderland Room is slightly smaller than the Baron’s Hall and offers a more Elizabethan aesthetic. Licensed for both ceremonies and receptions the Sunderland Room is especially pretty during the festive season, with a large Christmas tree and roaring fire to keep up to 136 ceremony guests and 88 seated dining guests, warm and cosy.

If you're looking to marry in the summer months, you may prefer an outdoor ceremony in the intimate inner courtyard. A secluded, private outside space that can be used for ceremonies or an entertainment space, It has scented climbing roses and clematis set against the ancient walls of the historic home and adjoins the magnificent medieval Baron’s Hall - ideal for going from your outdoor drinks reception to your seated wedding breakfast. 

Just 40 minutes away from London, and on the Kent, Sussex and Surrey borders, Penshurst Place is the perfect mixture of countryside escapism, close to the city. We welcome private viewings from Monday - Saturday with a member of our experienced weddings team who will be able to go through your ideal day with you, and demonstrate what we can do to ensure your day is as perfect s can be.

Our wedding day was so wonderful; the support provided in the run up to the day, the wonderful food and wine tasting, as well as the attention to detail on the big day. We both felt that the team really understood our ‘brief’ and vision and very much made that come alive. It really was a day to remember
