Tenterden Kent

Tenterden is the so-called 'Jewel of the Weald' and it's not hard to see why. Its mix of history, shopping and things to do, together with a particularly attractive High Street lined with trees, make this a town to explore without doubt.

For those interested in history, follow the Tenterden Heritage Trail that takes in the museums, churches, the Elizabethan, Georgian and Victorian buildings and Town Hall. Smallhythe Place is also a worthwhile stop - Ellen Terry's 16th century cottage and gardens.

For families no visit to the Weald of Kent would be complete without a trip to the Rare Breeds Centre just outside of the town. The Kent & Sussex Railway steam train can also be caught from Tenterden - a magical ride that terminates at the magnificent Bodiam Castle. There's also plenty of shopping be done too!
