This tiny little village is straight out of a fairy tale. The square is gorgeous, with some lovely gifty-type shops, a great tea room (with gluten free scones!) and a lovely pub. Some fab walks around. Oh, and it has a little shop-cum-post-office as well.

This was just what we were looking for in our visit to Canterbury. Lovely peaceful village. Nice tea room and local church to visit. Quiet walks and lovely old buildings.

Amazing to find a perfect chocolate box village within 15 minutes of Canterbury where you feel you have stepped alone into the 18th century.

a delight walking round this small village with its tea rooms, old pubs, and gift shop. Lots of character and History. The church is a delight and open to the passing public.

The square at Chilham is magical. Well worth a visit then a cuppa in the tea room or something stronger in the pub.

Spent a short time here and wandered around and popped into a gift shop before having lunch in the pub. Delightful village. Easy to get to and in summer can get very busy and this is a small village. There is the castle to visit...More

Chilham is a nice little village with some old buildings, a historical church, a pub, a tearoom and a huge house named Chilham Castle. Worth a visit! Takes about an hour to get a good impression
