Apple Day 28th - 29th September | Kentwell Hall

Apple Day 28th - 29th September

Celebrate Apple Day and the Potager in full harvest at Kentwell Hall's 17th Century Walled Garden. Plus, the last weekend the House, Garden and Farm are open until our Dickensian Christmas!

Kentwell has a collection of over 60 apple and pear varieties, from Norfolk Beefing to the Pitmaston Pine Apple. The first fruit trees were planted in the 17th Century, and the espaliered orchard maintains this layout today, with trees both ancient and modern producing fruit for the House and Tearooms.

Taste and compare varieties including the Irish Peach, Summer Golden Pippin, Crimson Queening and Emrith Early. For traditionalists, Suffolk varieties include the Sturmer Pippin, Lady Henniker and St Edmund's Pippin.

Head Gardener Peter Suttle will be on hand to provide tasting notes on the apples and answering your pomicultural questions.

Apple treats will be on sale in the Stableyard Tearoom!

Open 11am - 5pm. Advance booking discounts available.
