Lullingstone Castle is one of the oldest family Estates in the country and dates back to the Domesday. It has been in the Hart Dyke family for 20 generations.

Tom Hart Dyke, heir to the Castle, has recently built the famous 'World Garden' within the grounds of his family Castle. The famous World Garden is laid out in the shape of the map of the world and contains plants, planted in their respective areas of origin, collected from across the globe.

The church - St Botolphs' - has some of the oldest stained glass in the country. The Castle was a favourite haunt of Henry VIII and Queen Anne. Queen Anne's bath house and ice house can be found within the grounds.

New for 2009 the Temperate House containing many rare and tender species unable to thrive outside in the World Garden

The Castle has been the subject of a major BBC2 documentary series; 'Save/Return to Lullingstone Castle'
