Directions

Below you will find details of the meeting points for our expeditions. Generally these start at Folkestone, with pick-up points available in London and Otford. Parking is available at Oak Hall.

The pick up points for each destination will be indicated on the page that gives the dates and prices for that particular location.

London Meeting Point: Victoria Station

For those wishing to meet our group in London, we meet together at Victoria Coach Station in central London. This is easily accessible by both coach and train connections from all over the UK.

  • Our coach departs from Victoria Coach Station
  • Please pre-book this service
  • Please see display screens for departure gate 

Otford Meeting Point: Oak Hall Manor

By Car:

NB: SatNav systems are often less reliable to help you reach the manor than our directions!  If you use a SatNav, include the road name, 'Shorehill Lane'.

With Otford Station on your right, take the next right (Pilgrims Way East), sign posted Kemsing. After about 1/2 mile, take the first left turn (Row dow). At the top bear around to the right (Birchin Cross Road) and Shorehill Lane is the first turning on your right about 400 yards further on. At the end of this lane, bear left and go up the drive to Oak Hall Manor.

Car parking is available at a small cost per car. A minibus shuttle will take drivers to meet the coach at the Otford meeting point.
