Yesterday we visited Sissinghurst Castle (I can't remember if I told you; we recently became members of The National Trust - don't knock it until you've tried it...).
The history of Sissinghurt dates back to the Seven Years War but it was the story of Vita Sackville-West that I was intrigued by. Vita, a writer and close friend of Virginia Woolf, lived here with her husband in the 1930's. Known for their strong marriage, they were both also bisexual. Vita was famous for her exuberant life and affair with Woolf.
If you're looking for a place to visit in Kent that is steeped in history and has amazing gardens, Sissinghurst is a must.
