Points of Interest

1. Explore Kent by bike

Reputedly England’s finest example of a motte & bailey castle, that dates back to medieval times. The 13th century gatehouse is well interpreted with an audio tour and dramatic interior lighting which makes for an enjoyable visit, whatever the weather.

Haysden Country Park covers some 165 acres of woodland, meadow and open water and supports a wealth of wildlife throughout the year.

Penshurst Place and Gardens - The Sidney family and their descendants have lived here for more than 450 years and Sir Philip Sidney, diplomat, courtier and poet, was born here in 1554.

5. Penshurst Off-Road Centre

Penshurst Off-Road Centre - This fantastic facility is open all year in Viceroys Wood. It offers mountain bike trails for all levels of ability, from very technical to family leisure. Cycles can also be hired on site.
