By Public Transport

The best railway station to come to is Otford. (Kemsing Station is no closer to Kemsing, has fewer trains per hour, and no service at some off-peak times).

To get to Woodlands, you'd need someone to collect you from the station (or a taxi). With the aid of a good map, you could get there with a pleasant country walk with one steep climb; the distance is about 2.5 miles.

To get to Kemsing from Otford Station, head to the eastbound platform (Platform 2), and leave halfway along the platform where there are some steps and a ramp. Bear right at the top of the steps to head through trees, past Otford Scout Hut. The path gently climbs to reach Tudor Drive. Cross the road to another signed footpath nearly opposite. Follow this for half a mile to reach the western end of Dynes Road. From there, it's another mile to Kemsing Church — see the attached navigation maps.
