Tram Hatch Gardens are spread across three acres and over 30 years have been transformed from expanses of lawn into a series of loosely defined spaces. A unique feature is the Great River Stour which borders the garden.

There is a huge selection of flowers and a large collection of trees, including Cornus, Beech and Acers, which have been planted for their beauty and long-term interest.

The aim of the garden is to give year-round colour from a mix of flowers, trees and shrubs. There are early snowdrops and spring bulbs, then roses through to golden rudbeckias, autumn foliage, berries and bark to enjoy.

Classic cars available to view by Maidstone Vehicle Society.
