Itinerary Half Day

If you have a… Half Day in Westerham

A tall order – but we’ll do our best to ensure that you can capture the essence of Westerham…

1A great way of seeing the best our town has to offer is on foot, and a Walk round Westerham takes a leisurely couple of hours and enables you to see many of the historic buildings for which our town is renowned.

St.Mary's ChurchSt Mary’s Church a 12th century foundation, and the house next door in which John Frith, who worked with William Tyndale on the English translation of the Bible, was born.

SquerryesQuebec House the childhood home of General James Wolfe and who is commemorated by a statue on the Green. You’ll have time to visit the house and exhibition in the coach house before continuing your walk as far as the gates of Squerryes House home of the Warde family since the early 18th century.

As you complete your walk, relax over a cup of tea, a drink, a bite to eat in one of the many cafes and restaurants clustered round the Green.

2Or if walking is not your scene… then it’s easy to spend your half day in Westerham browsing among its varied and individual shops. It’s not hard to see why the town has become a destination for those who seek something special and different, whether as a present for someone special, or even better for themselves…

ShoppingFrom fashion to furniture, gifts to gardens, chocolates to cooking, antiques to alcohol – and so much more, you’ll find it in Westerham. And when you go home, you’ll take with you both the memory of the warm welcome and helpful service given by our shop owners, but also a unique purchase, not easily found elsewhere.

Eating OutAnd the really good news is that you’ll still have time for that drink or meal. You’ll find French, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Pakistani cuisine on offer as well as traditional English pub fare, tea and coffee shops, and pavement cafes where you can sit, sip and watch the world go by.

Not had your fill yet? There’s plenty more to see and do if you have a whole day to spend…
