Friends excursion: Allington Castle, Kent
Join us on a trip to Allington Castle in Kent, a delightful 12th-century castle that is fully furnished in line with its medieval origins and rarely open to the public.
Our private guided tour of Allington Castle will venture through the long gallery, stone halls, chapel, courtyards and gardens and the Great Hall, in which Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn dined with Sir Thomas Wyatt in the 16th century.
Allington Castle was converted into a mansion house in 1492, when the Wyatt family acquired the property. It was severely damaged by fire in the late 16th century and lay abandoned until 1905. The castle was then purchased and partly restored by Sir Martin Conway and between 1951 and 1999 the castle was home to a convent of the Order of Carmelites. Today Allington is the private home of Sir Robert and Lady Worcester.
