‘Chilham is renowned for its beauty and charm’
The Kentish village of Chilham lies high above the valley of the River Stour and is set in the heart of the picturesque Kent Downs. Criss-crossed by footpaths, bridleways and country lanes, Chilham is perfect for endless days spent walking, cycling or horse riding and exploring the North Downs Way and the Pilgrims’ Way, which stretches to Canterbury.
However, the lure of more leisurely pursuits within this glorious South East countryside is often too hard to resist. Chilham is a historic village with much to see and do, including the delightful medieval square and its surrounding Tudor architecture, a 16th century church and the imposing Chilham Castle that boasts exceptional views across the Stour Valley.
Of course, no Kentish village would be complete without its traditional brand of welcoming hospitality and you’ll find it in plentiful supply in the pubs, inns, tea rooms and restaurants that are set in and around Chilham.
