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.
Secret Nuclear Bunker
Hidden behind the doors of an unpretentious bungalow lies what was once one of Britain's best kept secrets. Built in 1952 with 40.000 tons of concrete, 100 feet below, lies the bunker that was built with the purpose to give shelter to a devolved central government and military commanders if the UK would have been attacked and nuclear war broken out.
The bunker consists of a maze of rooms that offered enough space to house 600 people, with own water supply and electricity generators. There is also a civilian operations room for Ministers or even the Prime Minister to organise survival measures following a nuclear attack, a scientists' centre, military operations command centre to organize retaliation, canteen, 5 dormitories, a sick bay and a BBC Studio.
Visitors can take an audio tour through the bunker which was built under such secrecy that not even its neighbours knew about its existence.
There are free parking facilities, a gift shop, refreshments and toilets.
Please note that due to its design and purpose of the bunker there are no lifts and the three storeys are only accessible via stairs. It is recommended to wear flat shoes.
Opening times :
Summer Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm (last entry)
Weekend and holidays 10am to 5 pm (last entry)

Hever Castle in Kent dates back to 1270. It was enlarged into a Tudor dwelling in the early 1500s when it was the childhood home of Anne Boleyn (wife of Henry VIII and mother of Elizabeth I). The castle was restored by William Waldorf Astor in 1903 with the building of the Tudor Village and the creation of the gardens and lake.
The castle houses portraits, tapestries and artefacts from the sixteenth century. There is a costume exhibition in the Long Gallery and a large display of arms, armour and instruments of torture and execution in the gatehouse. The gardens include mazes, water features and fountains, and the Tudor garden and Rhododendron Walk.
