- Biddenden Vineyard is Kent’s oldest commercial vineyard, having been established in 1969 to produce wines and ciders. The vineyards are set in 22 acres on a gentle south facing slope in a shallow sheltered valley. Ten varieties of grapes are grown to produce White, Red, Rose and Quality Sparkling wines. Traditional Kentish ciders have also been made here for over 20 years together with farm pressed apple juices. Visitors are welcome throughout the year. Our coffee shop is open daily and there are marked walks around the vineyard for visitors to wander at their leisure.
- The tower has six floors of interactive exhibitions. On the top floor, you have the Camera Obscura to project a “virtual” tour of the city, and also on the rooftop terrace with its views of Edinburgh and telescopes. The floors beneath hold the “World of Illusions”, which offers interactive exhibits demonstrating aspects of optical illusions, light, colour. There are also puzzles, a mirror maze, and a vortex tunnel. Although the project is primarily a tourist attraction, it also serves as a learning centre about optical illusions, holograms, the origins of photography and about Edinburgh itself.
- Wookey Hole cave system has 25 chambers and was formed through erosion of the limestone hills by the River Axe. Before emerging at Wookey Hole the water enters underground streams and passes through other caves such as Swildon’s Hole and St Cuthbert’s Swallet. After resurging, the waters of the River Axe are used in a handmade paper mill, which began operations circa 1610, although a corn grinding mill operated there as early as 1086. The caves, at a constant temperature of 11 °C (52 °F), have been used by humans for around 50,000 years. The low temperature means that the caves can be used for maturing Cheddar cheese.
- The Theakston Brewery in the Yorkshire Dales town of Masham was founded in 1827. Theakston Brewery Visitor Centre allows you to witness the creation of Ales first hand and to experience the flavours and aromas of malted barley, hops and yeast for yourself. With a trained guide, you’ll be able to follow the entire brewing process: from blending the ingredients, through filling the casks, to the craft of the cooper as straight pieces of oak are formed into curved staves to create a sublime vessel that holds a precise measure of beer. You can chat to the people behind the beer, ask any questions, or simply soak up the atmosphere of the brewer’s art. You’ll also be invited to have a pint and enjoy the authentic taste of British beer at its best in the brewery tap, warmed by the inevitable real fire. Open all year round to members of the public. Guided tours are also available.
