Kent Castles and Gardens

On a perfect sunny day all you need is a destination…

Scotney Castle

and Sissinghurst Castle and Gardens and Scotney Castle, both in Kent and practically down the road from each other (about 10 miles)… so easy to visit both on the same day… especially if you start out early enough.

Sissinghurst Castle

Both destinations are National Trust, if you have membership so much the better, otherwise entrance fees are: Scotney £14.00 and Sissinghurst £11.

I suggest you check opening times and days because these do vary during the year and some days during the week they are closed.

Tip for the day take a picnic lunch and avoid standing in long queues for simple “cuppa tea”, these places get very busy especially on weekends.

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 5yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
