Chilham village has been described as nearly the "most beautiful village in Kent."

We drove into the village and parked the car in the pretty town square. Here were black & white half-timbered building's from the Jacobean & Tudor era's, and many flower's, it really was charming! If you wanted a meal, there was a Cafe and the "The White Horse,' the local village pub dating back to the 16th century.

After a wander in the town square, then I explored the side lanes where I found a lot more half-timbered homes with flower boxes, and even an old style car parked in the street.

It is well worth the short detour if you like stepping back in time.

Located near Canterbury, and you would pass by the turn-off on your way to Leed's Castle.

Address: Located 6.5miles from Canterbury
Directions: Follow the A28 [Canterbury Road], then turn into the A252.
