Belmont House, Faversham       Thursday 1st June

The focus of Belmont is the magnificent neo-classical house, but they also have beautiful gardens and the finest private collection of clocks in Britain to explore. A lifelong passion for horology led the 5th Lord Harris to accumulate one of the largest personal collections of clocks in the country. Six generations of the Harris family have each left their mark on this lovely country house.

The Gardens at Belmont are full of interest throughout every season. The Kitchen Garden was originally designed by Lady Arabella Lennox-Boyd and has beautiful Victorian Greenhouses, along with figs, hops, soft fruits and traditional apple and pear varieties. The Walled Garden contains a pond and is adjacent to the Pinetum complete with grotto.
