A deer park and manor house, Knole Park is a 15th-century masterpiece built by Thomas Bourchier, Archbishop of Canterbury. The Knole Golf Course lies in the north of the park. While most of the land is free for deer to roam. The deer there are used to people walking close to it which makes deer watching much easier. But the bigger attraction of Knole Park is the Knole manor house.
The 7th Baron Sackville still lives within Knole Park in private apartments. The rest of the manor is opened to the public. Knole has 6 centuries worth of history stored and kept in it. It has been a host to visitors for almost 400 years now. A popular myth says that Knole has 365 rooms, 52 staircases, 12 entrances and 7 courtyards. But that depends on how you count. You need to count for yourself to know whether it’s the truth or after all just a myth. Knole Park is one of the most popular places to attract a large crowd almost every week.
