Firle Place, set in an ancient park, has been the home of the Gage family for over 500 years. The estate is now owned by the 7th Viscount Gage. Firle Place is a large house which still retains the approximate shape of Sir John Gage's original Tudor building.

The parkland surrounding Firle Place is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the foot of the South Downs.
