Whether you are interested in heritage, shopping, nature, food and drink, or recreation, there is always something to enjoy when visiting the Kent & East Sussex Railway.

Ever wondered what it would be like to step back in time and experience the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone era, at The Canterbury Tales you can do just that. Housed inside the former church of St Margaret's in the heart of old Canterbury, The Canterbury Tales is based on the writings of Geoffrey Chaucer, one of England's finest poets. Join Chaucer and his merry band of pilgrims on their magical pilgrimage from The Tabard Inn to the shrine of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Along the way, their stories of love, romance, jealousy and trickery are vividly re-created with all the fun and excitement of the famous Tales. The Canterbury Tales is an accurate re-creation of medieval life. With new audio-guides, it provides an excellent introduction to the City and its famous literary connection.

Ightham Mote
Ightham Mote

The most complete medieval manor house in England. The only Grade I Listed Dog Kennel in England. The biggest conservation project ever undertaken by The National Trust on a house this age and fragility. Rare and unique surviving Tudor painted ceiling dating 1520 'Conservation in Action' exhibition. Originally dating to around 1320, the building's importance lies in the fact that after the completion of the quadrangle with a new chapel in the sixteenth century, its successive owners effected relatively few changes to the main structure. It remains like a snapshot of how such houses would have looked in the Middle Ages. Nikolaus Pevsner called it "the most complete small medieval manor house in the country". It was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1985 by an American businessman, Charles Henry Robinson, who had bought it in 1953. The house is now a Grade I listed building, and parts of it are a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill

Bought by Sir Winston Churchill for its magnificent views over the Weald of Kent, Chartwell was his home and the place from which he drew inspiration from 1924 until the end of his life. The rooms remain much as they were when he lived here, with pictures, books and personal mementoes evoking the career and wide-ranging interests of this great statesman. The hillside gardens reflect Churchill's love of the landscape and nature. They include the lakes he created, Lady Churchill's Rose Garden and the kitchen garden. Many of Churchill's paintings can be seen in the studio.
