My husband and I are taking a holiday to Kent this summer and as beer lovers we are interested to know if there are any tours of hop farms that you would recommend visiting.

Interested in picking up a hop garland so probably harvest time tours would be good.

Any hop farms in Kent you would recommend?

There are very few hop farms nowadays and even fewer which offer tours.

Hukins Hops near Tenterden seems to be the major tour provider...and they sell hop garlands online so they're probably your best bet:

Scotney Castle is the only National Trust hop farm. They run tours for just a week at the end of August/beginning of September : https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/scotney-castle/features/hops-and-harvest-at-scotney-castle-

If you're happy to travel out of Kent, Hogs Back near Farnham offer tours:
