Getting there:


Space in the car park is limited and you may need to park in nearby roads. Please observe directions from stewards.


Kemsing station is about a mile away by public footpath.


Unfortunately bus services to Kemsing have been cut since our last AGM here and there is no longer a suitable bus from Sevenoaks station.  There is a bus to Seal (308) but there is then a 1.3 mile walk by footpath – further by road.  Please check at Traveline South East before travelling.
