Explore the medieval village of Wye, nestled in the hills of the Kent Downs National Landscape, and perhaps try the ale at one of the quaint village pubs.

The village sits at the foot of the North Downs, with the Great Stour river passing through the centre. It has a rich history stretching back to the very earliest of human habitation.

Take a short walk to the Wye Crown chalk hill figure. Carved into the hillside above the village by students of the once thriving agricultural Wye college, it celebrates the coronation of King Edward VII in 1902.

The North Downs Way Pilgrims Festival 2018 took place in the picturesque village. The week long celebration included a programme of inspiring walks, talks and events to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the North Downs Way National Trail.

The impressive natural landmark, the Devil’s Kneading Trough, can also be found in the Wye National Nature Reserve.
