Getting There

A circular pub walk from the White Hart in Sevenoaks, Kent. The White Hart is a beautiful old coaching inn which has been serving the needs of travellers for more than 300 years. The walking route follows a circuit around the adjacent Knole Park, a 400 year old deer park. The beautiful landscaped grounds make for easy walking with great views and plenty to see including wildlife, veteran trees and long ancient avenues. The walk has a few gentle gradients throughout and the paths are a mixture of tarmac drives/pavements plus grassy rides within the park, which tend to be pretty firm all year round. There are two kissing gates and no stiles. There is one short section of road walking so take care of any traffic at this point. Dogs are welcome in Knole Park but must be kept on a lead as the park is home to a large herd of fallow deer. Allow 1.5 hours (plus extra time to visit Knole House if you wish. Note: entrance fees apply for the house and formal gardens and dogs are not allowed in this part).

Seveoaks is located in Kent, a few miles south east of the point where the M25 and M26 meet. The walk starts and finishes from the White Hart on the main A225 Tonbridge Road, just south of the town. The pub is on the right-hand side of the road if you are travelling south. The pub has its own large car park alongside. Approximate post code TN13 1SG.

This is a nice walk. Yes, it’s a shame about the road section but it’s a means to an end and the walk through Knole Park was varied and easy to follow. We saw a green woodpecker, mistle thrush and lots of jackdaws but wouldn’t class it as particularly good for bird watching. Nevertheless, it’s a lovely walk and definitely worth doing for the deer, the park and the White Hart pub. .

Lovely walk - even with white hart currently closed due to covid. Public toilets closed at present which may inconvenience some . Lovely deer spotting and feeding opportunities

Beautiful park and you're pretty much bound to see some deer. Only small quibble is I'm not sure why the last bit goes via the roads. Isn't there a path back through the woods?
