Lullingstone Castle is an historic manor house, set in Kent. It has been inhabited by members of the Hart Dyke family for twenty generations. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, the manor of Lullingstone was acquired in 1279 by Gregory de Rokesley, who served eight terms as Lord Mayor of London. The present manor house was started in 1497 by Sir John Peche. Henry VIII and Queen Anne were regular visitors to the house. In the mid-1960s Dartford Rural District council laid out a golf course in the grounds and created a public park but the house itself remains in the hands of the Hart Dyke family.
