Uitstap Engeland - Kent mei 2019
Students of English went to Kent, East and West Sussex.
Between 8 and 12 May 38 students and 2 teachers visited places in 3 counties in the Southeast of England.
On day one we stopped at Sissinghurst Gardens and Castle to discover that this is indeed one of the most beautiful gardens of England. Later that day Leeds Castle was our second stop.
Then we drove to the hotel where we stayed for 3 nights.
Day 2 brought us to Alfriston, a beautiful village with a big green village square. Near the church we visited “The Clergy house”. It`s the first building to be acquired by the National Trust. The guides of the National Trust turned out to be passionate story tellers.
The second part of visiting Alfriston was a guided walk in the small, lovely village with authentic pubs.
In the afternoon we drove to an amazing place at the seaside called “Birling Gap” and the Seven Sisters”, these are famous chalk cliffs. Part of the group walked to Eastbourne. It was a tough 8 km walk with beautiful views.
Day 3 took us to Petworth House with its amazing art collection:
And after that we visited Arundel Castle which left many of us speechless
Sunday the 12th it was time to go back home. But we did stop in Canterbury for a guided city tour and a visit to the cathedral. Unfortunately they were a bit too busy there and we had to rush.
In 2021 we’ll be going to …..?
With lots of thanks to Heiltje, Myriam & Benny for the photos and some of the text.
