Day trip from London by train - Hever Castle? Tonbridge Castle?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a day trip from London in late June. I'm fine with about a 2 mile or so walk from a train station. I love castles and gardens (architecture and exteriors more so than furniture and art work inside).

I really want to go to Bodiam Castle but from my research it sounds too difficult/complicated to get to by public transportation. So I'm looking at Hever Castle, Tonbridge Castle, Knole House and Ightham Moat. Any opinions on any of them - both in terms of what they are like ("worthwhile" - hate that phrase but you know what I mean - and I know everyone will have different opinions) - as well as ease of getting there. How easy would it be to combine a couple of these on the same day? Which ones?

Other suggestions? I'm probably going to Arundle on another day. Have been to Leeds Castle (and Sissinghurst).
