Bradbourne House

Bradbourne House is a Grade 1 listed building set in 20 acres (81,000 m2) of parkland, close to the village of East Malling in Kent, England. The house was originally built in Tudor times but was extended and altered in the early 18th century by Sir Thomas Twysden Bt to become the building in existence today. The house was owned by the Twisden family until 1937 when the last of the line, Sir John Ramskill Twisden, died.

In 1938 it was purchased by the East Malling Trust for Horticultural Research, a charity, which still owns it, together with nearly 600 acres (2.4 km2) of adjoining land. The Trust’s income supports horticultural research at the nearby East Malling Research Station, and elsewhere.
