Cranbrook in Kent, known as the 'Capital of Weald', is a pretty town with a medieval layout of streets and alleys, and many buildings dating from the 15th century through to the 19th centuries.

Today, Cranbrook is full of interesting individual shops and is perfect for browsing.

With plenty of B&B Accommodation and Events running throughout the year, Cranbrook is the ideal destination for a short break. 

The wealth from its days as a centre for clothweaving is still evident in the splendid old buildings, including the Parish Church of St Dunstan, known as the Cathedral of the Weald.

The Union Mill is probably Cranbrook's most famous landmark, one of the finest smock mills in the UK and still in working order.

Elizabeth I visited the George Hotel on the corner of the High Street in 1573. More interesting facts on Cranbrook's fascinating history are to be found at the Cranbrook Museum.
