Sackville College is a Jacobean Almshouse in East Grinstead, founded in 1609 and still in use as an Almshouse today.
Visitors to Sackville College enter a building that is nearly 400 years old. The College’s connection with the Sackville family goes back to the year 1609 and the will of Robert Sackville, Earl of Dorset. This provided a sum of money with which to buy land and “build a convenient house of brick and stone” to be used as an almshouse.
For many years the College had a second use, too: providing overnight accommodation for the Sackville family as they journeyed to and from their estates in Sussex. The heads of the Sackville family have been Patrons of the College through its history. The present Patron is the 11th Earl De La Warr.
Opening Season Mid June to Mid September. Admission by guided tours at 2 pm & 3:30 pm. Groups can visit at other times by prior arrangement.
