Groombridge Place

The large estate has something for everyone including the popular forest with its huge tree swings, a board walk including a children’s zip wire and Crusoe’s World with its authentic large wooden ship complete with rope bridges.  

White Garden 630

The award winning gardens which overlook the impressive moated 17th Century manor house is the perfect place to relax and unwind.  The carefully planted borders are complemented by statues and water features.  Children can play with the giant chess set and can often be seen playing hide and seek.

There is a canal boat which links the gardens to the forest and also a path which visitors can choose to walk along next to the canal.  The Vineyard next to the Birds of Prey is one of two ways to enter the forest and takes visitors past one of the more unusual animals found at Groombridge, the Zeedonk!

The popular Bird of Prey Centre is also based at Groombridge Place and this is a chance to see some magnificent birds up close.  Twice a day the birds thrill visitors with their daring flying displays while their handler captivates audiences with his commentary about the birds while they fly. The demonstrations take place every day (except Mondays but including Bank Holiday Mondays) at 12.30pm and 3.30pm.  The displays are free with admission.

The beautiful peacocks that roam the grounds can often be seen from the new ‘Peacock Bistro’ which serves hot and cold drinks, as well as delicious lunches and cream teas. There is indoor and outdoor seating available.
