KENT DOWNS HIKE – Shoreham, Lullingstone Park & Castle


11:00am Saturday 25th May

This is a hike that has it all! We will wander up to a vantage point to take in amazing views across Kent’s rolling downs before passing through woodland, fields and parkland. During the latter part of this hike we will have the opportunity to pick up some crafts or fresh produce from a farm. We’ll be following the river back into the quaint old village of Shoreham where we will grab a pint at the pub.

I am nervous to join alone

Most of the events are attended by solo Adventuresses, and they usually confess to being nervous to join us for the first time, so you already have something in common! We make a great effort to get everybody involved and talking so nobody will feel left out 🙂 Our walks are at a relaxed pace
