"Gardens Open" season is not just in the Spring and Summer, many of the magnificent gardens in Kent and Sussex are open throughout the year, Brogdale, Home of the National Fruit Collection at Faversham is always special. It has the largest collection of historic fruit trees - apple, pear, cherry and plum and after the fruit is harvested the trees turn to rich autumn hues and a brisk walk through a frosty winter garden with Jack Frost pinching your cheeks can be very rewarding. Scare yourself silly at Halloween with a spine tingling Ghost Walk around Canterbury or join in Lewes's unrivalled celebrations of 1605's gunpowder plot as its raucous parade winds through steep, cobbled streets with colourful costumes, flaming torches and ear-splitting bangers.
