Plan your trip
The historic market town of Sevenoaks thrums with independent and high street shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. Stroll the length of the High Street to see Knole, a 600 year old estate in an exquisite medieval deer park.
Bat & Ball Station
From here you can explore Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve but before you do make sure to spend time marvelling at the beautifully restored Victorian station, once used by Queen Victoria when she visited Knole.
You'd never know it when you first step off the train at this quiet village with a duck pond at its heart, but Otford was once home to one of the biggest palaces in England.
A pretty village with a medieval bridge spanning the River Darent, Shoreham is the place for country walks and wine tasting at the award-winning Mount Vineyard.
Stretch your legs with a walk from Shoreham Station to Eynsford Station. Enjoy listening to local farmer William Alexander as you wander across this rural landscape of rolling hills, deep valleys and meandering rivers. Discover a Norman castle, a Roman villa and a feat of Victorian engineering. Click here to see the full route...
In and around Eynsford you'll find the Norman remains of Eynsford Castle, Lullingstone Roman Villa (the largest excavated Roman villa in England) and Lullingstone Country Park. There's also Lullingstone Castle and The World Garden, only a short walk from the station.
Around 1.5 miles from Eynsford Station (and the same distance from Shoreham Station) you'll find Castle Farm. Here you can explore the picturesque Lavendar Fields and make sure you visit the The Hop Shop before you leave.
The town of Swanley is another great spot to join the Darent Valley Path and it has one of the best family parks in the area, boasting over 60 acres of outdoor space including a boating lake and mini golf.
