A unique opportunity!

Uncover a ‘Hidden Knole’

How would you like to have the once in a lifetime opportunity to see the bare bones of Knole before work starts to repair and rerender the East Front. Book a place on one of our scaffolding tours and be given a guided tour through the giant scaffolding structure covering Knole’s East Front. Have a look at the damage uncovered by the removal of cement render and wooden laths, part of the house’s two-year programme of emergency repairs.

You will be provided with hard hats, high-visibility tabards and steel toe-capped safety trainers so please come dressed appropriately, arms and legs covered, thick socks advised. There are 48 steps in total to climb and the highest platform is eight metres from the ground. Visitors must be physically fit and able to tackle stairs without assistance. Over-16s only, please.

Tours take place on Tuesdays from 4, 11, 18, 25 September, between 2-3pm and 3.30-4.30pm. Spaces are limited and booking is essential, £6 per adult. Please call the Central Box Office on 0844 249 1895
