It is easy to see why Kent is referred to as the ‘Garden of England’ as it is a region of picturesque countryside, elegant stately homes with beautiful gardens and heritage steam trains. We’ll get to enjoy a few of these on our holiday to Kent along with a visit to the cathedral city of Canterbury.

 

ROMNEY, HYTHE & DYMCHURCH RAILWAY & CHAPEL DOWN VINEYARD

Enjoy a scenic one-way journey on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway which stretches across the picturesque Romney Marsh from Hythe. From here we visit the Chapel Down Vineyard in the beautiful Kent countryside for a tour of the winery and tasting of the award-winning sparkling and still wines.

 

KENT & EAST SUSSEX RAILWAY & GREAT DIXTER HOUSE & GARDENS

Travel back in time as we board the Kent & East Sussex Railway, a fine example of one of England’s light railways for a scenic journey from Tenterden to Bodiam. Later we visit Great Dixter House & Gardens, an historic house surrounded by beautiful themed gardens including the Sunk Garden, the Exotic Garden and the Peacock Garden.
