Groombridge Place Enchanted Forest & Gardens in Kent is a wonderful place for a family day out, or a day out without children. The 17th century manor house was used for the 2005 film of Pride & Prejudice, and the historic gardens and estate inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for one of his Sherlock Holmes novels. The formal gardens are beautiful, there are peacocks roaming free, and a zedonk has his home at Groombridge. There are woodland adventure activities for children, canal boat rides and lots more to discover. Click through to the full review for all of the details.
