The children were impressed by Hamleys, the big toy store and lots of other things. In Downe we saw the house of Charles Darwin, very beautiful house and garden and a room for children to play. Even in the Sissinghurst garden there was a searching quiz with photographs, the children loved it,
When we came “home” they ran to Harry the horse or Timmy the tortue, nice animals. We learned to know Kent as having very very friendly people and full of activities for children! Thanks.
