    Dear Anastasia, you are planning a wonderful event and i would love to participate. Unfortunately, I am already booked with another group (going to Bath). Also, I have a consideration. i was looking for organized short (1-2 days) weekend trips around England, somewhere like Belgium, France or Netherlands. It would be nice if you could organize ones, say under the slogan "England beyond England" and which can include places to visit like Waterloo, for example. Cheers!

      Hi Leonid, we do organise regularly excursions around UK, but not outside of it. It is our next step, but for the moment we are not quite ready.
      We tried to organise couple of times excursions to France and skiing in Alps, but there were not many people willing to go. So we stick with UK for the moment )
      Check our facebook page for the future excursions:

    This may seem an odd question but if the entrance to the sites is free then what's the 30 quid for!?

      Hi Adrian,
      All these 3 locations are a quiet far from London. It is about 2 hours drive to Whitstable, and then another hour and a bit drive from Whitstable to Tonbridge castle.
      High Rocks are not that far from Tonbridge castle, but still it is far for walking.
      we gonna go there by 17-seater bus.
      So the price is to cover organisational cost and transport.
      To find out more, you can check our facebook page:
