Paths

There is a riverside path that runs along the river Darent between Lullingstone Country Park and Lullingstone Castle. This is a 20 minute stroll. The path is mainly unsurfaced but reasonably flat, which makes access good during the spring, summer and autumn months, but it may become muddy during the winter.

There is a play area at the side of visitor centre in the park. This area is on level ground, with a rubber safety surface. It is surrounded by a fence but can be accessed through a level gateway.

Toilets

We have one unisex accessible toilet adjacent to the main visitor centre which is open at all times. These facilities can be reached via easy access pathways and do not require a Radar Key.

Toilet facilities are available at all times when the park is open to visitors, even if the café and shop are closed.
