We had hoped to visit Chilham Castle which is a beautiful Manor House dating back to Norman times and giving great views across the valley of the River Stour. Unfortunately it is now not open to the public.

one of life's hidden charms, well worth a visit as part of a visit to Canterbury or nearby, can see why its used for film shoots including the top gear jag shoot and many historical dramas, nice pub and church in the square.

As other reviewers have stated, Chilham Castle is privately owned, so what a privilege to attend a fundraising dinner and also chat with the owner. Sadly it was a dark and chilly December's evening so it wasn't possible to view or stroll round the gardens...More
