Penshurst village is in a valley near the Kent and Sussex
borders in the weald of Kent's peaceful landscape.
It is typical of what a Kent country village looks like.


The ancient church in the centre of the village, with old houses around it is very picturesque. Nearby is Penshurst Place, a large medieval manor house dating from 1341, one of England's finest Country Houses, it is open to the public daily throughout the year. There are many events held in the grounds in the summer from music concerts to car rallies. You can visit the Toy Museum, which includes the Yootha Rose Collection, memories of nurseries, dolls, dolls houses, and toy soldiers.

There is one garage in Penshurst which used to house the village blacksmith. It now accommodates a post office and small shop where you can purchase most day-to-day items.

There are three local pubs, the Leicester Arms which also accommodates visitors, is in the centre of the village. The others are on the outskirts.Penshurst also has its own vineyard which produces excellent white wine. There is also a small primary school.The village hall is the focal point for local clubs such as bridge and keep fit. The parish council also has its meetings there.That's Penshurst - blink and you'll miss it, look hard and there's lots to see and enjoy!
