Enjoy the homes and gardens open to experience and explore in the Swale area of north Kent

"Bloomin' Lovely" - Part of the Garden of England in north Kent

Walking through a shaded yew tree path, with acres of gardens in front of you and there is still time to visit an extensive clock museum. Swale has a wealth of beautiful homes and stunning picturesque gardens for you to leisurely explore which are open on a seasonal basis.

Take Belmont House and Gardens, a neo-classical house, a stunning flower garden and a kitchen garden to explore with figs and hops. Or perhaps Doddington Place Gardens where there are ten acres of gardens, yew trees and a woodland walk. Perhaps instead Mount Ephraim Gardens: 10 acres of Edwardian gardens to explore, a maze and an annual firework night in crisp November.

If you have an interest in the countryside and Kent Produce why not visit Brogdale Collections in Faversham, tour the orchards or attend one of the many seasonal festivals hosted at Brogdale Farm.

Abbey Physic Garden is set in the heart of Faversham: a beautiful walled, wildlife friendly, organically managed garden that places an emphasis on the therapeutic benefits of horticultural activities.
