Meet at 11:00am at St George's church in Wrotham (TN15 7AA) for the battlefield walk

Lunch is then under own arrangements before meeting at Arlington Castle at 2:00pm for a guided tour of the castle and gardens with refreshments.

Cost for the visit to the castle is £10 for Battlefields Trust members and £15 for non-members.  Closing date for bookings is 7 June and payment must be made at the time of booking. For further details and to book please contact Chris May using teh details below
