Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens
Tuesday 7th July
A day visit to Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens. Historic, poetic, iconic; a refuge dedicated to beauty. Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson fell in love with Sissinghurst Castle and created a world renowned garden.
Vita Sackville-West, the poet and writer, began transforming Sissinghurst Castle in the 1930s with her diplomat and author husband, Harold Nicolson. Harold's architectural planning of the garden rooms, and the colourful, abundant planting in the gardens by Vita, reflect the romance and intimacy of her poems and writings.
Sissinghurst Castle Garden was the backdrop for a diverse history; from the astonishing time as a prison in the 1700s, to being a home to the women’s land army. It was also a family home to some fascinating people who lived here or came to stay. Don't miss the vast panoramic views from the top of the Tower, the working farm and the 450-acre wider estate.
Cost: Entry Fee £13.10 (2019 price) + £20.00 coach fare making a total of £33.10 approx.
