Join us as we head to Kent for our Tudor Garden of England Tour.  Time travel to the 15th and 16th Century as we immerse ourselves in the Tudor Era. Head to the Kent coast on a visit to Walmer Castle, explore over eight-acres of award-winning gardens in the grounds of a Tudor fortress turned country house, built on the orders of King Henry VIII to defend England’s shores. Journey to Penshurst Place House and Gardens, once a hunting lodge for King Henry VIII, walk through opulent staterooms on a guided tour of Penshurst Place, wander magnificent gardens majestically surrounding the grand house, considered to be the most beautiful in England with yew hedging dividing the gardens into a series of rooms each with its own season and colour. Sit back, relax and enjoy a cream tea on a nostalgic steam train journey from Tenterden to Bodiam, through the heart of Kent’s beautiful landscape. Visit the picturesque towns of Tenterden, the ‘Jewel of the Weald’, bursting with a wealth of history and beautiful architecture and Cranbrook the ‘Capital of the Weald’, a pretty town with a medieval layout, we include a trip to the seaside with a visit to Ramsgate, home to the only Royal Harbour in the UK.
