Just 7 miles north of Sevenoaks, Lullingstone Roman Villa is one of the best-preserved in the country. Its vivid mosaics and striking wall paintings really bring the mid-4th century to life - check out the Roman-era under-floor heating in the bathroom. Then scroll forward 12 centuries at nearby Lullingstone Castle and World Garden, where a 15th century manor house is surrounded by plants from all around the globe. 

Sevenoaks is served by county wide stations BBC Radio Kent, Heart Kent and Smooth and many London stations. Because of its proximity to London, television signals are in the main received from the Crystal Palace transmitter, placing Sevenoaks in the BBC London and ITV London areas, rather than BBC South East or ITV Meridian which serve most of Kent from the Bluebell Hill and Dover transmitters.

The main industrial area is located north of the town, alongside the A225. Sevenoaks Quarry[13] is on Bat and Ball Road, also to the north.

At other times or from other airports an individual taxi service can be provided at an additional charge. Airport meals are not provided.

A serious railway accident occurred nearby on 24 August 1927. Southern Railway K class passenger tank engine No. A800 River Cray was derailed hauling a Cannon Street to Deal express, knocking a road bridge and killing 13 passengers. The locomotive crew survived. The entire K class was subsequently rebuilt to prevent such an event from occurring again. The accident called into question the quality of track laying in the area.[6]

The town is situated at the junction of two main routes from the north before traffic climbs over the Greensand Ridge which crosses Kent from west to east; that situation is similar to Maidstone and Ashford. That road was one of the earliest in the county to be turnpiked in 1709, because of the clay soils.[9]
