Hampton Court Palace
Hampton Court Palace is located in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and dates from around 1514 when it was built by King Henry VIII for Cardinal Wolsey. He lived in the palace until 1529 when he fell out of favour with the King and from that point on it became the main residence of King Henry VIII who had it enlarged. Over the next two centuries it was enlarged further and remained a principal residence of the Royal Family until the late 18th century.
Today Hampton Court Palace is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Britain and plays host to many events throughout the year, including an annual flower show by the Royal Horticultural Society that attracts over 300,000 visitors.
The palace is open for visiting daily throughout the year (with the exception of a few public holidays over the Christmas period) and several different ticket options are available. Full details of prices along with the opening hours are available on the website.
The history of the castle dates back to the Norman Conquest when one of the Norman nobles, Richard Fitz Herbert, was given land at a crossing of the river Medway. A typical motte and bailey wooden castle was built, but this was destroyed some years later during a rebellion. It was rebuilt in stone and the twin-towered gatehouse was added in the 13th century. The gatehouse still stands and is considered among the finest in England. The castle had a succession of owners but the Civil War saw an end to its existence and parts of it were gradually demolished and used for buildings elsewhere.
The grounds are free of charge and are open daily 8am to dusk. There is an admission fee for the castle which is open 9am to 5pm Mondays to Saturdays, and 10.30am to 5pm Sundays. There is an audio tour which lasts about one hour and is also available in French, German, Dutch and Spanish. The tour offers interactive displays and tableaux recreating medieval life.
Smallhythe Place is a 16th century timber frame building. It may have been the Smallhythe harbour master's office, from the days when the sea came much further inland and Smallhythe was a busy shipyard. Its fame today lies in its association with the actress Ellen Terry, the Victorian "Queen of the Theatre". She lived here from 1899 to 1928 and her collection of theatrical costumes and memorabilia is displayed. Also to be visited are the gardens including the rose garden, orchard and nuttery. The barn has been converted into a small theatre and performances are staged.
The property is now owned and run by the National Trust. Opening hours for 2008 are 15 March to 26 October, 11am to 5pm Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. There is a café and shop on site. Free parking is available close to the property.
Access is possible for the disabled.
Kent and East Sussex Railway
This rural light railway runs 10.5 miles along the Rother Valley from Tenterden to Bodiam with stops at Rolvenden, Wittersham Road and Northiam. Tenterden was by-passed during the railway building of the 19th century, but a light railway, the Rother Valley Railway, was eventually opened in 1900. A light railway was defined as cheaply constructed with a short life, with reconstruction to a higher standard hoped for from profits. It continued in this form until railway nationalisation in 1948, but losses to road traffic meant that the line closed to passengers in 1954 and to goods traffic in 1961. Enthusiasts managed to save the line from demolition and upgrade the track, and it was reopened gradually between 1974 and 2000.
It now operates as a tourist railway running trains pulled by steam engines. Themed events, including a Santa Special, are staged, and a Pullman dining car runs on certain dates. Travellers can buy a daily hop-on hop-off ticket to visit stops on the route. Free car parking is available at Tenterden and Northiam stations. A timetable is posted on the website.

There is also a small farm holding area where you can walk around and visit pigs, sheep, cows and many other animals. Facilities also include a new Skypark which provides activities for visitors, a gift shop, craft centre and tea rooms. Car parking is available and free. Opening times are 10am to 5pm (last admission at 4pm) and they are open year round,except between 24th-31st December
Crystal Palace Park
The Crystal Palace was constructed for the Great Exhibition of 1851. Originally it was located in Hyde Park, but due to its huge success it was transferred to the London Borough of Bromley and became a venue for the Victorian celebration of the British Empire. The Palace itself was destroyed by a fire in 1936 and little of it still remains, but the Park and its many attractions still exists. One of its main attractions is the newly restored Dinosaur Park, which dates back to 1851 and was the first in the world. Here visitors can view statues of life-size dinosaurs, prehistoric reptiles and mammals, as well as examples of geology which cover 350 million years of Britain's evolution.
The remains of the original palace that can be seen in the park include the Terrace Arches and the Sphinx . Further there is the largest maze in Britain, a Cafe and a children's playground. Football fans might want to incorporate a visit to the National Sports Centre, which is located in the center of the park and home to Crystal Palace FC. The Sports Centre is also a popular venue for concerts and other events. Free parking spaces are available at the Sports Centre and other locations near the main entrances. Toilets, including disabled toilets, can be found all over the park. Entrance to all attractions, apart from the National Sports Centre, is free. Opening times : Daily from 7:30 until half an hour after dusk.
