This October half-term our places take on a Halloween flavour, with ghoulishly entertaining goings-on to keep everyone entertained. From eerie trails at Emmetts Garden and batty goings on at Chartwell, to simply playing in the crunchy autumn leaves, there’s something to give the whole family the jitters.
Don’t miss the chance to walk amongst radiant reds and bronzes in autumn gardens near you. From the sweet-scented Katsura toffee tree at Ightham Mote to the beech avenue near Scotney Castle, there is something special in store.
Tuck into delicious Christmas fare at our special places in Kent this year. From local markets to shops packed full with festive goodies, to delicious seasonal lunches in our cosy cafes, we're serving up a treat this Christmas.

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.
