For details dates of 2013 Church Visits see below

What are the benefits?
   Discovering part of the nation’s history with like-minded people, and enjoying the beauty of Kent's countryside to name but two.  Often, towers, rooms (or entire buildings) not normally open to the general public are opened specially for us to explore.

Do I have to be an expert to come along?
   No - everyone is welcome.

Can I take photographs?
   Yes – many people do.

Can I ask questions?
   Of course!

How much does it cost?
   Each afternoon’s programme of visits costs only £5 including tea.

How do I pay?
  
Payment is made by cash on the day.

How do I get there?
   We operate on the basis that most people will have their own transport, as many of these buildings are in fairly remote places.  However, do let us know if this is likely to be a problem – there is a good chance someone else will be travelling in the same direction.  Some churches are accessible by public transport.

Does it matter if I have small children with me?
   No problem, children have come along to meetings before and are welcome, as long as they are supervised by a responsible adult; under-18s are free. (Please note that some buildings may be unsuitable for very young children).  We plan to make children’s activity sheets available in the near future.

Do we do anything else?
   Most years, we hold a Study Day with a programme of talks and practical activities based on a particular theme.

Do I have to be a member of the Kent Archaeological Society to join in?
   No, membership is not required, although of course we would encourage you to join!

How can I join the next visit?
   Please let our Secretary know numbers in advance at churchvisits@kentarchaeology.org.uk. We look forward to welcoming you.

Who can I contact if I have any further questions?
   Please refer to the Churches Committee on Contacts page.
