Events & Things to Do....


Chislehurst is a busy town, full of great events and activities for all walks of life. The Chislehurst Society hosts a busy calendar of talks and community events whilst there are larger family events organised such as The Summer Fair, Chislehurst Rocks, The Big Draw and the Halloween Pumpkin Hunt.

Chislehurst also plays host to some spectacular one-off events on the Top Common for the likes of the Jubilee and the Queen’s Tea Party for her 90th Birthday.

We also play host to a few running events including the Chislehurst Half Marathon and the Chislehurst Chase (10k).

The Rotary Club is a key organisation locally. Every November, they take over the Recreation Ground for a spectacular Fireworks Display and during December, you can expect a visit from Santa along your road!

Every third Sunday sees Chislehurst’s Hornbrook Car Park turned over to the Chislehurst Farmers Market where you can pick up some lovely produce from Kent and further afield.

Please visit our What’s on section to view our busy calendar of events.

Things to do!

Chislehurst is famous for our Caves! A labyrinth of man-made tunnels forming a maze covering over six hectares thirty metres below the woodlands above. For our full review of these amazing caves, please see here.

Chislehurst is also wonderfully located to enjoy the best of Kent and London! We have regular features and reviews of days out in the area.

We have a regular blog called “Just 30 minutes from” – this reviews local parks, tourist attractions and experiences for families within the 30 minutes zone from Chislehurst.

Clare Herriot (manager of the 2gether Charity Shop) also regularly gives her perspective on seaside resorts including Hastings and Whitstable

If you are a dog lover, you must read Walkies with Merlin and Arthur which charts their travels in and around Chislehurst.
