A couple of years ago I mentioned this Norman castle to someone who'd lived in Canterbury all their life and looked dumbfounded at my insisting there was a ruined Norman Castle!! I live a few miles outside Canterbury and when I drive into the City I tend to park in either of the two car-parks adjacent...and so I often wander in. If it's not your thing you can be in and out within just 5 or 10 minutes... If history IS your thing then you'll probably be in and out within 10 to 15 minutes.

Visited on a National Garden Schemes (NGS) afternoon and was bowled over by the sheer elegance, gracefulness and spectacle that is Chilham Castle Gardens. With truly classic terraces leading down through gardens, and tennis courts to a tranquil and delightful lakeside walk that facilitates a mind set of the way of life enjoyed by our more prosperous forebears. The gardens form only a part of a larger parkland estate that wends it's way over many acres almost to The Kings Wood, a large forestry.

I went with my family and we got chatting to the owner, it took him nearly 4 years to get all the funding and set the towers up for viewing but unfortunately after 6 months of this being open he sadly pasted away. The towers are not open anymore but this was a great place with a wonderful view. You can still have your picture next to it and the traffic can drive under it (unless your a double decker bus) This place has all medieval equipment as well as a jail cell. I would go again!
