A fascinating and unique day out in Kent, Down House offers an insight into the life of the father of evolution theory, and weather-proof fun for all the family.

See how your wellies match up to those of the Duke of Wellington himself at Walmer Castle. Home to the Duke for 23 years, his spirit lives on in the castle with a pair of his original 'Wellington boots' on display, and if the sun does decide to shine the gardens are filled with all sorts of wild flora and fauna.
The state of the art visitor centre at Stonehenge includes an exhibition of artefacts brought together for the first time, and interactive displays to learn about the history of this wonder of the prehistoric world.
