Places to Visit

 

We are based in a Kent village with great links for London, the rest of the country and Europe. You can be in London in just 15 minutes on a high-speed train from a station just five minutes away from your apartment. If you are driving, the M25, M20 and M2 motorways are near enough to get you around places. The M25 connects the rest of England as it circles the capital; the M20 links nicely to Leeds Castle, Ashford (for an outlet shopping centre) and Eurotunnel. The M2 takes you to Canterbury, Dover and the beautiful seaside towns of Whitstable and Broadstairs, and Margate for the Turner Contemporary art gallery.

Now here are some more great attractions.
