Trip Description

£28 including train travel from London Charing Cross 

We'll be going through the woods, parklands and fields of Kent for a diverse and stunning walk via Knole House, Knole Deer Park and Ightham Mote. On every walk here we've seen deer and at times very close too.

Come and see for yourself why the beauty of this area attracted the Beatles to film promotional videos for "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" here.

Walk Description

Our walk will take us through the 1000 acre Knole Deer Park which is home to over 800 deer and whose picturesque landscape attracted the Beatles to film promotional videos for "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever". The videos went on to be selected by New York's MoMA as two of the most influential music videos of the late 1960s

Knole House is one of England's largest houses boasting 365 rooms and 52 staircases and has remained surprisingly unchanged during it's history going back to 1486. Being surrounded by the glorious 1000 acre Knole Deer Park completes it's picturesque setting.

We shall also pass Ightham Mote, a largely original moated medieval manor house dating back to 1320 and described by David Starkey as 'one of the most beautiful and interesting of English country houses'. It also has an extensive history encompassing ownership from medieval knights to courtiers to Henry VIII.
