Tunbridge Wells, Chiddingstone and Hever Castle

We left the ship on Sunday, 26th May. There was a bit of waiting around till we were ready to set off to Crowborough, where we were staying in a cottage. On the way we stopped at Arundel and had lunch, wandered around the town and looked at the castle.

We then went to the cottage and settled in. On Sunday we drove into Tunbridge Wells. Here we visited the Pantiles, which is a lovely Georgian Collonade. Morning tea was pretty good too.

 Our next stop was Chiddingstone, which is a National Trust Village. It was just lovely. The church was full of flowers as there had been a wedding the day before. We also enjoyed a delicious lunch here.

In the afternoon we arrived at Hever Castle. Gorgeous gardens and so much history. This castle is over 500 years old and was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
