Addington Palace

Gravel Hill, Addington, CR9 5AD


  • Visitor Information

With a colourful and intriguing past that pre-dates the Domesday Book, Addington Palace is set in 163 acres of undulating, landscaped grounds. Henry VIII had a hunting lodge here and even wooed Anne Boleyn on site.

The elegant Palladian style mansion seen today was built in the 18th century by the Leigh family. It was soon established as the grand country retreat of six Archbishops of Canterbury, five of whom are buried in a nearby churchyard.

Inside there is a magnificent Great Hall, frosted with exquisite French chandeliers, hand-carved architraves and glistening silk wall coverings. There is a heavenly spa downstairs for those in need of pampering, whilst the other facilities make a majestic setting for weddings and conferences.

Free guided tours dig underneath the layers of history concealed within the palace. They run at sporadic dates throughout the year so we advise you contact the palace for tour enquiries.
