The town of Sevenoaks is a much beloved town that is nearly unanimously lauded by the surrounding communities of Kent. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering the fact that the county of Kent is filled with idyllic and gorgeous towns but there is something about Sevenoaks that sets it above and beyond its neighbors with astonishing poise and grace.

One thing that definitely helps Sevenoaks' reputation is the fact that the town is well known for having some of the finest educational institutes in the land. The eponymous independent educational haven, Sevenoaks School, is considered to be among Britain's best schools in any field. It is also the oldest secular school in the entire country, dating back to the 1400s when it was founded by Sir William Sennoke. Legend has it that Sennoke was an orphan that grew up on the streets of Sevenoaks and ultimately became a wealthy and powerful man. He ended up becoming the mayor of Sevenoaks and the construction of the school was seen as his love letter to the streets that shaped him for his future fortune. If Sennoke were alive today he would no doubt be thrilled with the prestige that his contribution has evoked. Unfortunately, there was a period of time during the 1500s when Queen Elizabeth, wanting to attach her name to anything that had a positive connotation, decreed that the school be named The Grammar School of Queen Elizabeth. It wasn't until her death that the school was allowed to go back to its original moniker. No matter what name is placed on the building, though, the fact remains that the school is a lovely testament to the magic of higher education.

With all due respect to Mr. Sennoke and his legacy, the most beautiful part of Sevenoaks would have to be Knole Park. This thousand acre-plus park is home to over a million gorgeous trees as well as many different species of deer. Many tourists come to Sevenoaks to take in the majestic sights of the park and, if anyone can manage their way through the vast woods, they can find the famed Knole House in the center of the forest. This famous house was dedicated to Sackville family by none other than the aforementioned Queen Elizabeth not long before she changed the name of the school. Perhaps she felt she was owed something after contributing such a beautiful house. The beauty of Sevenoaks and Knole Park has influenced quite a few artists and entertainers and anyone visiting the town would know right away how the stately beauty can elicit such creative tendencies. H.G. Wells lived in Sevenoaks and the Beatles shot many of their videos and interviews among the lovely scenery of the town. Princess Diana was a student at yet another prestigious Sevenoaks school known as West Heath School. You don't have to be famous to appreciate Sevenoaks, though; all you need is a set of eyes and ears and the ability to recognize beauty in its truest form.
