Walk with alpacas

Imagine walking through the great British countryside: the sky is blue, the sun is shining (it happens!), there’s an alpaca next to you. Yes, an alpaca, you’re not dreaming! We found a farm that organises treks with alpacas, lets you feed them and even take time for photos.

Though you can’t travel to Peru by train, you can al-pack-a your bags and head to Kent.
