We commence our journey south, with our first excursion being to Leeds Castle. Originally Norman, built on two islands in a lake, it has often been described as "the loveliest castle in the world". A romantic stone bridge links the keep, which rises sheer from the lake and the turreted main building. The interior is graced with splendid works of art, statues, carvings and tapestries
An afternoon visit to Sissinghurst Gardens (NT) is one of the world's most celebrated gardens and was the creation of Vita Sackville-West and her husband Sir Harold Nicholson. There is an intimate and romantic atmosphere and the gardens offer an array of colour throughout the seasons.
Following in the footsteps of the Tudors we visit Penshurst Place. On our tour of the house discover why the Sidney family, who still own it to this day, were gifted the property in 1552 by Henry VIII's son, Edward VI. Following this we visit nearby Hever Castle, childhood home of Anne Boleyn. Enjoy a leisurely free flow (non-guided) visit through the intimate castle and magnificent grounds.
Our visit today is to interesting Walmer Castle & Gardens (EH), originally built during the reign of Henry VIII and once the residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports and there are interesting gardens to explore, including the Queen Mother's Garden. On our return we visit Barnsole Vineyard for a guided tour and free tastings too!
We return home with a suitable stop for lunch en-route.
