Top things Sheer Edge love about this wonderful venue 

  • Port Lympne reserve is very different from your conventional zoo, because the reserve is part of The Aspinall Foundation which is a British charity that works to promote wildlife conservation. Here they house rare and endangered species, they aim to return all animals that are born here to protected areas of their natural habitat. Animals always come first at Port Lympne and that to us is just spectacular.  
  • We love the vast options for meeting and events, each room has a different theme and a feel about it, you are looked after here from the minute you arrive to the time you leave and nothing will stand in their way of making sure you event is a success.  
  • We absolutely love that this venue can provide accommodation to all delegates and can provide rooms that offer experiences you wouldn’t find anywhere else in the UK.  
  • Last but not least – you have had a superb meeting, indulged in some wonderful food, then it’s time for an unforgettable experience. When you book your event at this venue you will be given the opportunity to add on
    – Team building activities
