Heritage and Gardens

Stunning gardens, steam railways, country estates and specialist museums are waiting to be discovered.

In Ashford and Tenterden explore the essence of old England.  Here heritage comes to life.  Magnificent estates; gorgeous gardens; compelling museums; serene churches; iconic windmills; thrilling railways.

A charming cluster of historic houses means you can discover everything from grand manors stacked with clocks and antiques, to important theatrical collections and intimate, half-timbered homes.

The gentle countryside around Ashford and Tenterden shelters pockets of sheer delight for gardeners.  In intimate enclaves and formal estates, spring colour and summer blooms meet sweeping, topiary-framed lawns and rolling parks.  Hidden gems include Godinton House & Gardens, Hole Park, Beech Court Gardens and Belmont House.  And there are quintessentially English idylls that wow horticulturalists the world over: Great Dixter and Sissinghurst.
