The world renowned Leeds Castle is within easy walking distance of the pub, said to be 'the loveliest castle in the world.'

Also close by is Thurnham Castle which can make another pleasant walk from the pub.

White Horse Woods are part of a natural park of considerable beauty and diverse fauna easily accessible from The Dirty Habit.

The village of Boxley is a short walk away over the escarpment with some fine views across the Weald.

There are over one hundred listed buildings in the village of Hollingbourne itself and from the top of Hollingbourne hill there are some spectacular views towards the South Downs.

Wormshill and Bredgar light railway is also close by and definitely worth a visit. Please check their website for opening times.

After experiencing the Dirty Habit, perhaps you might like to visit The Friars-Aylesford Priory, an ancient religious house of the Order of Carmelites dating back to the 13th Century. You can take a wander around the beautiful grounds and admire and contemplate the Friars buildings, steeped in history - a special place for relaxation, peace and thought.
