Allington Castle is possibly one of Kent's best kept secrets. The 13th century medieval castle is nestled in 42 acres of beautiful gardens adjacent to the River Medway. The privately-owned estate with Italian gardens, lavender walk, parterres, courtyard & formal ponds, surrounded by a moat and fronted by two lakes, really is an incredible place to visit.

Here passengers disembark and are met by castle staff to begin their guided tour, the tour takes approximately 1.5hrs and is predominantly a walking tour, suitable footwear and attire must be worn.
