After travelling through the attractive countryside in the Weald of Kent, we visit the ‘fairytale’ Bodiam Castle (built 1385) which is in an excellent state of preservation. We then proceed to the coast near Rye for a seaside walk. The day ends with free time in the attractive medieval town centre of Rye, with its historic buildings and unusual shops. This popular annual excursion, organised by the University Chaplaincy, departs from the Canterbury Campus at 09.00 on Sat 20 Oct. Students and staff welcome. We aim to have arrived back in Canterbury by about 18.00. Cost is £15, including travel, castle admission and picnic lunch.
Tickets and details available from the University of Kent’s Online Store.
