Tours & Experiences


  • Daytime tours of the Museum
    Book a private group tour of the Museum, led by a guide, explaining the history and background of the most interesting of the Museum’s exhibits. The tour lasts about forty-five minutes, with time for questions, perusing our Reserve Collection or examining our latest Special Exhibition.  The cost is £12 per person with a minimum of ten people per tour. 

    Included in the cost is a £7 voucher which can be exchanged in the local teashops for coffee & cake, a cream tea or other food.  The voucher can also be used in This Ancient Boro’ towards the cost of their delicious tapas and award-winning Real Ale.

  • Tour Tenterden Town and the Museum
    You can combine your Museum Tour with a 90-minute tour of Tenterden High Street. The Town Tour starts and ends at the Museum and is conducted by guides from the Local History Society. The two tours combine to give a wonderful explanation of how Tenterden developed through the ages to what it is today. Tenterden really is an amazing place! The combined tour costs £10 per head for a minimum of 10 people. You can add the cream tea or coffee and cake option at a local teashop for an additional £7 per head.
