Welcome to Chilham Castle


Welcome to Chilham Castle

Chilham Castle is a private home, lived in by the Wheeler family. We love to share the house and garden for events large and small. Our unique selling point is that clients have the freedom to plan their own bespoke occasion, from weddings to business meetings and beyond. We will happily consider all sorts of ideas, no matter how unconventional. Our garden is frequently open to the public and private tours of both house and garden may be arranged by appointment.

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the completion of Chilham Castle and Shakespeare's Death, we are delighted to have been chosen to host the premiere of the Globe Theatre’s open-air summer season. They are producing, at our exciting and unique venue, four performances of Shakespeare’s ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’.
