Choices Choices Help to Make a Good Decision

Jump to last reply

So of course I packed a lot into my wish list but probably won't have enough days to do them all. I am trying to squeeze in as much as I can though.

If we had to choose between a day for Rye/Battle/Great Dixter vs. a day for St Catherine by the Cliff/Walmer/Deal/Broadstairs? Which to choose? (I think we would rather reserve Dover Castle for a full day and not try to rush to do Deal and Walmer along with it on the same day. This way we can explore a little further afield too like Broadstairs).

Both groupings appear to be mostly outdoor activities with some inside stuff to do. One would be done out of a base of Canterbury while the other would be done from a different base yet to be determined but either Tenterden, Tonbridge or Tunbridge Wells.

Trying to determine how many days I need for each base. Either spend one more day in the Canterbury area or one more closer to the middle like Tunbridge or Teterden etc. All depends on what is more popular. DS and DH would enjoy both the beach and the Battle area so it is hard to choose either or.....Need people's opinions on what they enjoyed most.

Regarding Broadstairs, which is the best bay to visit? Viking, Kingsgate, Stone, Botany? How far from the center of town are Kingsgate and Botany? Are there parking facilities nearby?

I should also start a separate thread on this but I read about the Historic Dockyards in Chatham and thought DS and DH might find that interesting too. A day away from castles and gardens. This of course would require a separate day. Has anyone been to the dockyards and do you recommend?
