If you want to explore why not take to the car and dodge the rain drops with a tour of the Wealden Churches. These unique historical buildings reflect the times that they were built in and all have their own tales to tell.
From the little church of St Martin of Tours in Ashurst, one of the oldest and one of the most simple churches in the area to one of the largest, which became known as the “Cathedral of the Weald”, St Dunstan’s in Cranbrook.
To ensure you don’t miss such gems as All Saints in Tudeley with its stunning stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall, or the spectacular windows at St Mary The Virgin in Speldhurst, designed by Burne-Jones and William Morris download the trail leaflet.
If that all seems too much like hard work, tour the delightful Wealden towns and villages searching for that quintessentially English and ultimate indulgence afternoon tea. Choose from the classic cream tea with scones and clotted cream to quirky afternoon teas with a glass of champagne.
For a carefree tour why not follow the scenic driving tour around the Weald of Kent, through a rich landscape of orchards, rolling countryside and vineyards, taking in the most picturesque villages along the way.
The villages are more than just pretty places to visit. Each one has its own character and community, with tea-rooms, shops, and pubs waiting to welcome the visitor.
So don’t let the rain chase you away. Stay a bit longer the clouds will roll away and the sunshine will return.
