The summer's made for walking, and that's just what we'll do. There are estate routes at Chartwell, or all-ability paths around Knole Park. Whatever your walk, make sure to get out into the countryside on our trails in Kent this summer.
Shine a spotlight on the county's tucked-away treasures with our little Kentish gems. Make it a family affair at Owletts or look beyond the house to discover a different side to a British hero at Chartwell.
Do you want to walk along cliff tops and view the English Channel? Or climb hills for stunning views across the countryside? There's something for everyone to enjoy in the coast and countryside sites we look after in Kent.
Many of our places in Kent and East Sussex were home to, and shaped by, people who challenged conventional ideas of gender and sexuality. We join the dots between the people whose collective story started over 150 years ago.
Membership makes a vital difference, but doesn’t cover all our restoration and conservation work. Additional gifts to our general funds help us act quickly wherever the need is greatest. Find out how your support can help Carmen save centuries old objects at Knole.
Why not join your local supporter group in Kent? You can join a more active volunteers group, or come along to a centre or an association that focuses on fundraising and fun trips and tours. They help support our places like Ightham Mote, and Scotney Castle.
Gather up your family and friends, pack your favourite summer lunch and seek out the perfect spot to unroll your picnic blanket on a visit to our countryside and gardens in the South East. Follow in the footsteps of Jane Austen’s Emma, who famously picnicked at Box Hill, or set up on top of Devil’s Dyke for glorious views of the rolling South Downs.
