Eco-friendly visitor centre
Opened in 2006, the award winning and eco-friendly visitor centre is at the heart of Shorne Woods. Constructed from local sweet chestnut wood and powered through fully renewable energy, the visitor centre is a modern addition to the country park, whilst remaining firmly rooted in Kentish tradition.
Take a break for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea in our spacious, modern café. It's the perfect space to meet up with friends or family, to warm up over a cup of coffee, or enjoy something from our range of homemade cakes, pastries and seasonal menus. There’s also an eco-friendly wood fired pizza oven too.
