Welcome to Chilham Castle
Chilham Castle is a private residence situated in the heart of the Kent countryside
Originally built in 1616 by Sir Dudley Digges on the site of a medieval castle, the house has been lovingly restored by its current owners and occupies a beautiful position offering sweeping views of the surrounding area.
The well-maintained gardens which form part of the estate, originally designed by Thomas Heron and Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown, are open to the public on Tuesdays throughout the summer months. Historical tours of the house are also available by special arrangement.
Chilham Castle plays host to a number of events throughout the year, from open air performances from the touring Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre Company to the annual ‘Chilham Chase’ fun run.
The venue is also available to hire, if you are looking for a truly unique location to make your event extra special.
Please do get in touch, we are always happy to hear from you!
