Kent

This southeast home county has worked hard to earn its nickname 'Garden of England'. Visit Kent for a sensory experience in castle parklands and mazes, pick seasonal fruit at orchards or roam wealds and downs sprinkled with pointy-roofed oast houses and windmills. There is a wealth of things to do in Kent. History lessons come to life in ancient Canterbury where the Romans built walls, Chaucer wrote medieval tales and Marlowe penned Elizabethan plays. Or follow pilgrim steps through silent cloisters at the towering cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lace up your walking shoes for coastal paths through the county towards those iconic White Cliffs steeped in World War II memories.
