Groombridge Place is a remarkable and beautiful country estate resting on the border between East Sussex and Kent, on the edge of the historic village of Groombridge. With a 17th century moated manor house, sculpted formal gardens and 200 acres of parkland, Groombridge Place is everything you might expect from a traditional English country estate but with so much more to offer. Whether you want a relaxing stroll around the stunning gardens, an adventurous and fun-filled family day out or an unforgettable wedding venue, Groombridge Place is awaiting your visit.

UPDATED 25 November 2020

UK Coronavirus Lockdown

On 31 October the UK government announced a second English lockdown.

We know some visitor sites are staying open but Groombridge Place has unique attractions which make it more difficult for us. We looked at ways that Groombridge Place might stay open but decided that the spirit of the regulations is more important than finding loopholes and so regrettably, I have to let you know that Groombridge Place will have to close until 4 December.  Tickets will be available to purchase online for this date and other selected dates until Christmas Eve.

For anyone who has purchased tickets to visit between now and the 2nd December we will be writing to you directly.

Please do not phone as it will not be answered as staff will be on furlough.

Thank you for all your support and wonderful photos on Facebook and Instagram. They are happy memories of recent, if somewhat wet, days.
