Winter walks in Kent

Looking for some fresh air? Why not enjoy the serene views from the White Cliffs of Dover or the panoramic Wealden countryside at Sissinghurst Castle Garden? Then warm up with something hot afterwards in a cosy cafe. There's lots of places to unwind on a winter walk in Kent.

Setting off for a walk in Knole Park

Knole self-guided trails 

Discover three different walks in Knole's 1,000 acre deer park this winter. A woodland ramble suited to families, a walk around the edges of the park to spot the famous seven oaks, and a wheelchair and pushchair friendly tour of the park's highlights await.

Walk the Chartwell estate 

Start out exploring the 800 acres of farm and woodland at Chartwell before venturing further afield on one of our winter walks. Families will love the forty-five minute walk to discover our natural play area, whilst those out for a longer hike can go out into the Weald to Toys Hill or Mariners Hill.

Walking through the Sissinghurst estate
