Canterbury & Kent
Goodnestone Park is only 20 minutes from the historic city and UNESCO World Heritage site of Canterbury. This medieval city, with its wide range of shops and cafes, really is worth a visit. Guests can enjoy a tour of stunning cathedral and grounds or enjoy a boat tour along the River Stour.
Other notable places to visit include Sandwich, one of best preserved medieval towns in England.
Kent has plenty more to offer: located at close proximity to the coast there are a number of beautiful beaches to visit on a sunny day near Goodnestone Park. Visit Whitstable, a traditional seaside town whose Oyster Festival is a nationally famous event. For a sandy alternative, Broadstairs is home to some of Kent’s most popular beaches and was visited by Charles Dickens, some of whose characters in Bleak House and David Copperfield were inspired by Broadstairs.
Guests may also wish to visit Leeds Castle, described as ‘the loveliest in the world’; explore the wartime tunnels of Dover Castle; or visit the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway from which you can see the largest expanse of shingle in Europe at Dungeness, a great day out for adults and children alike. Alternatively, pay a visit to Howletts Wild Animal Park, at just 15 minutes from Goodnestone Park.
