When to Go

It's best to visit in spring, summer, or early fall. Many privately owned castles and mansions are open only between April and September or October. Failing that, the parks surrounding the stately houses are often open all year. If crowds tend to spoil your fun, avoid August, Sunday, and national holidays, particularly in Canterbury and the seaside towns.
