The South East England / Kent region
Hops, Europe, the sea, coastline, and the edge of London all make Kent a unique place to visit.
Kent is steeped in history and heritage and is also rightly renowned throughout the world as the Garden of England. Our extensive coastline boasts an enviable array of blue flag award winning beaches and thrilling watersports activities.
It's easy to visit Kent in England's south east corner, just 35 minutes from central London on Southeastern's new high speed rail link. Once here, you can stay carbon friendly and visit much of Kent by train including the county's iconic landmarks such as Canterbury Cathedral, Leeds Castle and the White Cliffs of Dover.
Rail links to Ashford International and Ebbsfleet International, Europe is easily reached on Eurostar.
Affectionately known as the 'Garden of England', Kent's famous gardens including Sissinghurst Castle Gardens are world renowned. Kent offers numerous historic locations and attractions including Canterbury's cathedral and St Augustine Abbey ruins, Rochester and Dover Castle, Chatham's historic dockyard, Royal Tunbridge Wells' stunning Georgian Pantiles walkway and Chalybeate Springs and historic cinque port Sandwich. Long a gateway into England, always at the frontline of defence and with close links to royalty and London, Kent has many spectacular castles including most popular Leeds Castle near Maidstone and Hever Castle in the South West Corner, historic home of Anne Boleyn.
The birth of English Literature can be traced to Kent and Geoffrey Chaucer's famous work 'The Canterbury Tales'. Charles Dickens fans will also want to head to Kent. Whilst much of Dickensian London is no more, key Dickens locations and sights, many of which feature in his novels, still remain in Kent. Particular Kent locations with Charles Dickens links include the Medway towns Chatham and Rochester and Broadstairs on the Thanet Coast.
The Broadstairs area
Imagine lazy summer days lounging in a secluded cove, fun family cycle rides along bright spring promenades, bracing cliff-top walks on crisp autumn mornings and the heart-warming feel of watching white horses break onto the shore from a cosy restaurant in mid-winter. Broadstairs and surrounding villages – a great all season coastal destination with lots of heritage and culture to discover and explore
Broadstairs, around from Margate, yet a quiet resort famous for its Charles Dickens associations, his house called "Bleak House" after the book, is now a museum, and Dickens House was the fictional home of Betsy Trotwood in David Copperfield. There is a Dickens Festival every June.
The best of Kent's stunning choice of Blue Flag sandy beaches are around the far east Thanet Coast with seaside hotspots Margate and Broadstairs particularly popular with families.
Gardens, beaches, harbour, and clifftop walks make this a relaxed holiday resort and don't foget the many restaurants, bistro's, cafe's and pubs that are on offer.
