Darent Valley Path
Travel through the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and along the Darent River on this beautiful walk.
You start off near Sevenoaks Railway Station and head north through the delightful tranquility of the Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve. The route continues towards Otford (with its 16th century Palace) and then onto Shoreham where you'll pass Lullingstone Castle Manor House. As one of the oldest family estates in England (1497) Lullingstone Castle has an interesting history and attractive gardens making it well worth a visit.
The next section takes you on to Eynsford and Farningham where the river is particularly attractive. This section passes Eynsford Castle and the pretty Farningham Woods Nature Reserve, which is worth a small detour from the path.
From Farningham you enter the outskirts of London, passing Darenth Country Park and Dartford before finishing at Dartford flood barrier - the world's second largest movable flood barrier.
