Before You Go

Kit's Coty House and its neighbour, Little Kit's Coty House, are the remains of two megalithic 'dolmen' burial chambers. Kit's Coty is the larger of the two monuments, with three uprights and a massive capstone, while the smaller, Little Kit's Coty (also known as the Countless Stones), is now a jumble of sarsens.

Although the origins of their names are unknown, what is certain is that long barrows such as these were initially constructed during the early Neolithic period to act as communal burial sites.

Both are located in an open field offering fantastic views across the North Downs and Medway Valley.

Plan a Great Day Out

After exploring the site, head to Rochester Castle and take to the battlements of its imposing 12th century keep, the site of an epic siege in 1215.  

Also nearby is Old Soar Manor, a small but complete section of a 13th century stone manor house.

At Eynsford Castle you can see the substantial walls of a Norman 'enclosure' castle standing within a picturesque village.  Eynsford is also home to Lullingstone Roman Villa where you can gain a unique insight into Roman domestic life, and take home a souvenir of your day from the gift shop.
