Port Lympne, Rye, Bodiam and Sissinghurst--doable in a day?

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

Is this a nutty thing to try and do in one day?

I know we can easily combine Sissinghurst with Bodiam and Scotney in one day but we are trying to also somehow fit in both Rye and Port Lympne if we can into the trip and don't know best combination to accomplish this.

Another option for us is to combine Port Lympne with Dover Castle (leaving out Walmer and Deal) and then on another day we can combine Sissinghurst, Bodiam, Rye and maybe Scotney too?

However, we would like to see Walmer at least along with Dover Castle. DS would like to see one of the animal conservation places either Port Lympne or Howlets and Port Lympne I believe will be closer to other things we want to see.

So far I have

Option 1

Day 1--Dover, St Margaret's Bay, Walmer, Deal
Day 2-Port Lympne, Rye, Bodiam
Day 3--Sissinghurst and Ightham Mote (must see list)
Won't be able to do Scotney with this option.

Option 2
Day 1-Dover Castle and Port Lympne--is it better to see Port Lympne in the morning though rather than afternoon?
Day 2-Sissinghurst, Bodiam, and Rye
Day 3- Ightham and Scotney
Won't be able to see St Margarets Bay, Deal or Walmer under this option

Do you have recommendations on what might work best and which places you enjoyed the most?

Thanks for all your wonderful advice.
