SISSINGHURST CASTLE

SISSINGHURST CASTLE
SISSINGHURST CASTLE

Author and gardener Vita Sackville-West and her diplomat husband Harold Nicolson acquired the Sissinghurst estate in 1932 and set about creating the garden, divided into its separate 'rooms', for which it is famous. Sissinghurst has a colourful past as a POW camp for French captives and a Saxon pig-farm...there is no castle at Sissinghurst, though there is a splendid Tudor gatehouse and a large estate to explore; but go for the garden.
