Visitors are transported through 900 years of the castle's history; an eclectic mix of period architecture, sumptuous interiors and family treasures waiting to be discovered.

Port Lympne Wild Animal Park is home to the largest breeding herd of Black Rhinos outside Africa as well as Siberian and Indian tigers, African elephants, small cats, monkeys, Barbary lions and many more rare and endangered species. The world's largest gorillarium, "The Palace of the Apes" is home to a family group of Gorillas, fed at 12 noon and 3:00pm daily.

The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway is Kent's mainline in miniature.  First opened to traffic in July 1927 as the 'World's Smallest Public Railway' and now covering a distance of 13.5 miles from the picturesque Cinque Port of Hythe, near the channel tunnel, to the fishermans cottages and lighthouses at Dungeness.
