Kent - the Garden of England

Kent is known as the Garden of England for good reason …It's beautiful landscapes and a rich agricultural heritage produce some of the best food and drink you could wish for.

Click on picture for a brief overview

Much of the glorious countryside is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Thousands of miles of footpaths criss-cross the county offering wonderful walks through ancient woodland and over beautiful countryside. Rural Kent is liberally dotted with National Trust houses and gardens and delightful towns and villages.

Kent also has charming coastal resorts which retain a timeless appeal for visitors of all ages. The long and varied coastline extends from the marshy Medway Estuary to the wild shingle outcrop that is Dungeness. There are wonderful walks following the ancient Saxon Shore Way and many of the beaches offer a range of watersports from windsurfing to scuba diving. Tudor fortifications and underground tunnels beneath Dover Castle provide plenty of fascination for history lovers, or hop on the cross Channel ferry to enjoy a trip to France.
