A circular walk around the delightful deer park at Knole in Sevenoaks. The walk begins near the bus station in Sevenoaks and heads past Knole House, along the Broad Walk and Chestnut Walk to Fawke Common. You continue through Rambles Wood, Godden Wood and then through Knole Park Golf Course before returning to the start point. The grounds of the park are delightful with about 500 resident deer, ancient woodland, dry heathland, acid grassland and wood pasture. Knole house contains a world class collection of furniture and textiles from royal palaces and is also well worth exploring.
If you'd like to continue your walk you could follow the Greensand Way east towards the lovely Ightham Mote with its woodland, gardens and parkland surrounding a medieval moated manor house.
Just to the south you will find the delightful Riverhill Himalayan Gardens which has nice footpaths taking you to a walled garden with Himalayan-inspired grass-sculpted terraces and a large pond with fountains.
Just north of the park you can visit Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve and follow the waymarked trails around the five pretty lakes while looking out for a variety of wildfowl.
