The Kentish Lady will be offering guided tours of Allington Castle’s beautiful gardens, courtyards and also its impressive Great Hall from next spring.
In an exclusive and unique excursion, groups and societies will have the opportunity to experience the scenic River Medway combined with a visit to possibly Kent’s best kept secret.
The 13th century medieval castle is nestled in 42 acres of beautiful gardens next to the river.
This privately-owned estate with Italian gardens, lavender walk, parterre, courtyard & formal ponds, surrounded by a moat and fronted by two lakes, really is an incredible place to visit.
Departing from the mooring adjacent to the Archbishops’ Palace, the Kentish Lady cruises through Maidstone River Park (with commentary) to a private mooring at the castle estate.
Here passengers will disembark and be met by castle staff to begin their guided tour. At the end of the tour it’s back on-board the popular riverboat for tea, coffee and cakes, before heading back to towards the town centre.
