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.
Chatham Historic Dockyard
Chatham Dockyard built ships from the 16th to the 20th century, the last one launched in 1966. Many of these were Royal Navy warships, including HMS Victory. This maritime heritage and many of the original buildings of the 18th and 19th centuries have now been preserved as a visitor and educational attraction. Covering 80 acres, the Dockyard has land-based displays such as the Wooden Walls, describing the 18th century navy, and the Ropery, and also three different types of ship to visit: a Victorian sloop, a World War 2 destroyer and a 1960s submarine. There is also a lifeboat display.
The site has a shop, café and car park. It is open daily from February to October; hours vary, details are on the website. Land displays are accessible for the disabled, but visits to the ships are difficult. Virtual tours are available as an alternative.
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)
