The counties of Sussex and Kent are blessed with verdant rolling hills, white cliffs and beautiful scenery, and this conference tour will take in highlights of southern England’s rich cultural heritage. The tour will begin with a visit to Bateman’s, the Jacobean home of The Jungle Book author Rudyard Kipling, including the gardens and water mill. In the afternoon we cross into the county of Kent, the garden of England, and the spectacular Hever Castle and gardens, once home to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife. Following lunch in the castle grounds, participants will have the opportunity to explore the castle, the extensive gardens and the popular maze, before ending the day with a traditional English cream tea.
