inspired by knepp
Art Exhibition

For a dozen glorious spring days, the Knepp Rewilding Project will play to host a group of 12 artists. Their exhibition, called ‘Inspired By Knepp’, will show individual artworks that celebrate and champion the rewilding movement. Profits from the artworks sold will be split between the artists and the Knepp Wildland Foundation charity.

The exhibition runs from the Knepp Estate 4-16 May and is open daily, between 10am-5pm. Entry will be free, and you can also visit the Wilding Kitchen and Shop and explore the Knepp Estate grounds yourself, using the designated footpaths.

Over the last few months, the artists have been given safari-like tours and spent several days exploring the estate. This exhibition will show each artist’s response to their time spent immersed within the inspirational, transformed and thriving landscape.

We regret to say that at present, The Gathering and Granary, which are the main venues for the exhibition, do not have level access and therefore are not accessible to wheelchair users. There are several steps going up to both The Gathering (9 in total) and The Granary (7 in total), each set of steps have handrails. The shop, entrance hall (where there will also be artworks), shop and cafe all have level access and there are accessible toilets in the Cafe too.

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
