Spring in the Garden of England

With so many beautiful gardens around the area you will be spoilt for choice, take in the vibrant new colours of the season at Godinton House and Gardens.  At the beautiful Hole Park be amazed at the spectacular carpet of Bluebells, or take a gentle stroll around the Kings Wood and marvel at the sight of these poignant springtime flowers. The National Garden Scheme opens for the season so you will be sure to find a local place to visit from their guide.

Keep and eye out for the Easter Bunny, and take part in one of the many activities and Easter Egg hunts around the area.

Celebrate English Wine Week at Chapel Down Winery and also taste the delights at Biddenden Vineyards.

See the arrival of the Spring animals at the Rare Breeds Centre or take a ride through the beautiful lush Kent countryside on a steam train as Spring begins to shoot around you.
