Although there aren’t too many sights to speak of in the town itself, there are a couple of historic attractions in neighbouring Ightham village that are well worth a visit. Ightham Mote is a superb moated manor house nestled in a sunken valley and dating from 1330. The beautiful St. Peter's Church and its adjacent cemetery of crooked headstones date from the 16th century.
A short drive west on the A25 takes you to the historic town of Sevenoaks, where many people come to visit the immense baronial estate of Knole. Knole House was transformed into a palace in 1456 by Archbishop Thomas Bourchier, for himself and succeeding archbishops of Canterbury. Intriguingly, it was designed to numerically match the calendar with 7 courtyards, 52 staircases and 365 rooms.
Tonbridge Castle (pictured) is a lovely day out for the family and history lovers, and is located only 16 minutes drive directly south of Oldbury, along the A227.
