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

King's College Chapel
King's College Chapel is, as the name implies, the chapel of King's College, one of the constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge. All the colleges have chapels, but this one is world famous as a crowning example of the English Gothic perpendicular style. Begun in 1441 at the instigation of Henry VI, it was not completed until 1531, by which time the technology and vision came together to create the intricate fan vault, the largest of its kind in the world. The chapel is also famous for its original 16th century stained glass. The physical setting of the chapel, on the lawns of the college beside the Cam, adds to its beauty.
The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, led by the chapel choir, is broadcast world-wide on Christmas Eve.
Entrance fees are £4.50 for adults, £3 for children and concessions.
Free entry to local residents and members of the university who can also take in two guests. An audio tour is £2.
Main entrance is through the north porch but there is a ramp for wheelchair users at the south porch.
Opening hours are complicated and affected by recordings and recitals. The website has a full page of opening hours through the year, so best check first. The Christmas Eve Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is open to anyone, but tickets are not sold in advance, it's first come, first served. This means you have to be in the queue before 9.30am, you are let into the Chapel at 1.30pm and the service begins at 3pm.
Visitors can tour Charleston Farmhouse - once home of the author Virgina Woolf and other members of the Bloomsbury Group - and its gardens. Part of the house shows a display of art by members of the group such as Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant. The house is as it was originally decorated with pieces and fabrics designed by the artists themselves.
The gardens are also open to the public at a reduced cost.
There is limited disabled access to the house though some facilities are accessible.
The house is open to visitors for organised tours between March and October. Unaccompanied visits can be made on Sundays and bank holiday Mondays. See the website for comprehensive opening hours.
