Nestling in the valley of the ancient River Darent with some of Kent’s finest countryside, Westerham is a charming Market Town attractive to residents, business and visitors. Its roots can be traced back to the Vikings and the Romans.

With easy access from the M25, Gatwick and London, it abounds with cafes, pubs, restaurants and independent shops, and even has its own brewery. Its most famous residents are, amongst others, Sir Winston Churchill and General James Wolfe and their homes are open to the public. Welcome to all who wish to share our ‘Westerham experience’!
