Leeds Castle, Kent
One of the loveliest castles in England - says the brochure. Set on a small island surrounded by superb gardens. There is a maze, children's play castle and birds of prey demonstrations.
Bodiam Castle, East Sussex
A beautiful castle surrounded by a moat. One of the few castles left that's still intact. A great place to explore and fabulous for photography.
Sissinghurst Castle & Gardens, Kent
Climb the top of the tower for amazing views! There is a good mix of activities for children and adults and a number of lovely walks.
Rye, East Sussex
From the historic church to the old cobbled Mermaid Street, Rye is a very interesting place to visit. There is a town market on Thursday and the best Fish'n'Chips on the south coast (I think anyway!) Walk down to the Strand and visit some of the old fishing huts, which are now cafe's and antiques stalls.
This old market town is well worth a visit with its many unique little shops and cafes to enjoy. It is also home to the Kent & East Sussex Railway, which is also well worth a trip on.
Houses & Gardens
Smallhythe Place, Kent
Just across the road from Chapel Down winery is this very picturesque National Trust property. Visit the home of Victorian actress Ellen Terry and explore the house, cottage garden and even attend a show at the 17th-century thatched Barn Theatre.
Great Dixter House & Gardens, East Sussex
Home to the late gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd, this fabulous house and amazing gardens is place of pilgrimage for horticulturists from across the world.
