The Hop Farm

The Hop Farm is Kent’s iconic and historic landmark, over 450 years old. A 400-acre Country Park in Beltring, near East Peckham in Kent, the Hop Farm holds the world’s largest collection of Victorian oast houses. A major supplier of hops to London breweries in the 19th and 20th centuries, families across the south east and beyond used to spend the summer holidays working in the rolling countryside around the farm, harvesting hops and preparing them to be transported. Nowadays, The Hop Farm Family Park is packed full of attractions.
