Chartwell, Hever Castle and Ightham Mote

Jump to last reply

Is it possible to do all three in one day?

I am trying to squeeze in a trip to the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum on a separate day and we won't have time for everything that we want to do so we need to prioritize or consolidate.


Chartwell--1 or 2 hours??
Hever website recommends 4 1/2 hours--is that accurate? Do you need that much time for Hever Castle and Gardens?
Ightham Mote --1 and 1/2 hours?

Plus travel time in between--

Should we skip the Weald and Downland and concentrate on Chartwell and Hever on one day and then Ightham paired with something else like Sissinghurst instead on another day? We will be staying in Kent so the Weald and Downland museum will be a longer drive than the others mentioned. It looks interesting and different but we also want to see the above properties too. I welcome thoughts and advice. Thanks.
