OUT NOW! The New Elham Valley Railway Book by Brian Hart
for further details
Nestled between Canterbury and Folkestone, the Elham Valley is situated in
the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is good
access by car from the M20 and A2, alternatively by train to
Canterbury or Folkestone and the regular
bus service which runs along the valley.
There can be few places as tranquil as Kent's Elham Valley that are
so easy to reach and offer such a range of activities. Enjoy a walk
in the unspoiled countryside followed by a pub lunch at one of the
many charming village pubs.
Breathe in the fresh air, drink in the views and feel yourself
There's accommodation to suit every budget from B&B to self
catering or luxury rooms. The
makes it a great place for an overnight stop before a
channel crossing from the nearby port of Dover or the Eurotunnel
terminal at Folkestone.
The Elham Valley Way
, a 21 mile promoted footpath, passes over
fields and through woods and villages, it therefore provides
a wondeful encounter for the long distance walker. The Way largely
traverses the track of the old Canterbury – Folkestone Elham Valley
Railway which closed in 1947.
The pretty village of Elham
hosts some wonderful historic houses of
Kent together with welcoming pubs, and log fires in the winter.
