The Little Brook Street Llamas are back at Chiddingstone Castle for families to enjoy a guided trek with a Llama around the beautiful grounds this summer

On Tuesday 29 July and Tuesday 5 August between 10am and 3pm Llama lovers of all ages can take these gentle animals for a stroll around the Castle grounds and learn all about them. There will be a small charge for the trek and pre-booking is advised to avoid disappointment: call 01892 872746 or email events@chiddingstonecastle.org.uk.

The Tea Room and Gift shop are open during the same times and admission to these does not require an entry ticket to the Castle.

The neo-Gothic Castle, with its Tudor origins and Victorian ‘upstairs downstairs’ rooms, is the former home of the eccentric English antiquarian, Denys Eyre Bower. Denys’ collections include Japanese Samurai armour, Ancient Egyptian antiquities, Buddhist artefacts, Stuart paintings and Jacobite manuscripts.

Entry into the Castle is £8 for adults, children 5 to 13 £4 and under 5’s free. A family ticket is £21.50 (2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 3 children).
