Self-Guided Tours

We invite you to come and fully immerse yourself amongst our vines. Right in the Heart of the Garden, we are Kent’s original Vineyard owned and managed by the Barnes family since 1969.

Our Self-Guided Tours run from May – September at £10 per person and include a tasting flight of 3 of our wines.  For an additional £5 per person, upgrade to a tasting flight of 6 of our wines. £5 (maximum) is redeemable against purchases of Biddenden products over £20 from our vineyard shop.*

We will provide you with a pack which will walk you through our vines, giving you an insight into our family vineyard history and the grape varieties we grow to make our exclusive Biddenden wines.

We have two walking routes to choose from. The Red Route will take approximately 40 minutes to complete, and includes several way-points, where you can stop and learn about the grape varieties. Or if you can’t wait to try our products, the Yellow Route is a short gentle walk and will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

There is no need to pre-book, simply visit our vineyard shop on arrival to check in and pick up your self-guided pack.  Self-Guided Tours are available in line with our shop opening hours and the last chance to enjoy a stroll around the vineyard is 1 hour before closing.  Tastings are available all open hours.

Please consider the British weather conditions when you visit, and bring suitable footwear.

We also offer open tours and private guided tours for groups of up to 8 people, more information & details on how to book may be found here.
