About the Wrotham Classic Steam and Transport Rally
The area of Kent, southeast of London, is ancient and modern. The town of Wrotham, named after the warlord, Wrota, was founded in the 10th century (that the 900’s for American readers). Every year, Wrotham sponsors the Wrotham Steam and Transport Rally to return visitors to a time of the more recent past.
For over 40-years, the Rally has continued to build steam and grow. Exhibitions of many steam-powered engines and equipment will be accented by classic and collectable automobiles, motorcycles, military vehicles, and even bicycles. Additional live demonstrations of the equipment and practices will fill the rally with fun and edutainment.
The rally will also feature a plethora of delicious food and drinks, as well as trade stands and artisan stalls. Stroll through the grounds and discover secret treasures for your home, or find that specifically challenging to find the piece for your own collection.
Wrotham Steam and Transport Rally
The rally is sponsored by the Wrotham Steam and Transport Rally. Proceeds from the rally are used for charity and community projects, most recently the Wrotham Pavilion was completed using the funds raised.

Somewhere to Stay in Kent
In the center of Wrotham is the Bull Hotel. This antique pub with 2-rooms is in a 14th-century coaching Inn. With only two rooms available, call early for a reservation for your stay during the rally. Another great option is the Hilltop Hotel & Restaurant where the guest rooms feature 4-post beds with period-style décor and en suite bathrooms. One can never go wrong staying at the Holiday Inn Maidstone - Sevenoaks. This modern, streamlined hotel offers a kid-friendly environment with an indoor pool, free parking and wi-fi, and a restaurant. Nearby, the Thriftwood Country Park offers traditional caravan and camping sites for those more inclined to the natural realm.
Getting To Top of Wrotham Hill
Ride the train to the rally on the Southeastern line to the Borough Green and Wrotham station. Bus and taxi services are available to the rally grounds. Driving is quite easy using the M20. Exit at Junction 2 onto the A20 to the top of Wrotham Hill.
Other Things To Do Around Sevenoaks
In addition to the vast array of classic steam and automobiles, perhaps you will also feel the need to take flight. Visit the Shoreham Aircraft Museum to satisfy the need for the feel of the wind in your face and the air beneath your wings. If visiting the Rally with children, take them to the Kent Firefighting Museum for some traditional fun and learning for the whole family. Take a break from the hectic day for a quiet stroll or picnic lunch at Leybourne Lakes Country Park. Let the children and the dog run free to blow off some of their extra steam.
