While we were staying in Kent, a local suggested we visit Chilham. It’s a gorgeous little unspoilt village so typical of England. Only a few building surround a square, but they are so quintessentially British that you can’t help but smile. These unexpected, unplanned gems are one of my favourite parts of travelling.
A tea room, a pub and a few houses surround the central part of the quaint little village.
The church and graveyard stand off to one side, inviting exploration.
Chilham Castle is a private home, so we didn’t approach too closely. It’s open to the public on rare occasions, but this wasn’t one of those days.
A delightful little interlude on our way to Canterbury Cathedral.
Delightful, I like the flowers in the wellies. A lovely homey touch amongst all of the history.
