Welcome to the charming Old Alma Inn, a family run bed & breakfast – The Old Alma is a former Victorian Pub built in 1864 and situated at the historic village of Chilham. At the heart of the village is the 15th century square considered to be one of the most perfectly preserved medieval settings in south-east England The town of Chilham has grown around the ancient castle. There has been a castle at the site of Chilham, on the edge of a wood, in the heart of Kent, for over eight centuries; perhaps thirteen or more. It has changed hands many times, having been home to a host of colourful and sometimes eccentric families. Held from time to time by Kings of England, it was also once occupied; briefly, by the heir to the French throne on his way to invade London. Chilham is close to the history Cathedral City of Canterbury famed world over for its stunning architecture and held in reverence as a place of worship. There are also excellent links to London and the Channel Tunnel and Dover is only an hour away. The Old Alma is also the perfect place to stay and explore the beautiful countryside of Kent and Sussex.
