Somewhere to visit between Essex and Gatwick Airport

Hi We have to drop family off on Sunday 15th Sept at Gatwick about 4pm and we live in Essex. Wondered what we could do somewhere halfway or nearer to Gatwick for a few hours. Four adults and one 15 year old boy. Otherwise any recommendations for somewhere to pop in for Sunday Lunch ?

I would suggest Sevenoaks, nice market town with plenty of places to eat.

Rochester is worth a look, with Castle to visit....

Chatham Historic Docks, perhaps (but that, IMO is better if you have a whole day to spare...

Down House?? Charles Darwin's pad??

Lullingstone Roman Villa?

Hever Castle?

Thank you everyone. We think we might do Hever Castle as can also use Tesco Vouchers for here we've discovered. Also like the look of the King Henry VIII pub to eat at. Will be a rush but hopefully even if we just get 2.5.hours at the Castle it should be worth a visit.

I'd be careful where you park and how much is visible, you really shouldn't be leaving all the luggage and perhaps carry ons with passports, cameras etc in the car.

Indeed upon reflection I think it's a bad Idea to do this, I'd just drive there so you arrive in good time rather than trying to turn it into a day trip which would be an absolute disaster should theft occur.
