The South East England region
Fondly known as ‘The Garden of England’ due to its abundance of hop farms and orchards, Kent is the county of magnificent castles, glorious gardens, historic houses and maritime heritage. It is England’s oldest county and sits in the South East corner of the country.
>Kent has a fine selection of Blue Flag award winning beaches and a vast array of attractions to suit all ages and is a popular holiday destination with a mild climate and low rainfall levels providing the opportunity of enjoying some of the country’s finest weather – one of the many reasons this beautiful lush county has won awards for its vineyards and breweries
>Kent has more historic houses and castles than any other county, you will never be short of a place to visit on a rainy day. From romantic Leeds Castle to the eventful troubled history of Dover Castle, there are plenty of fascinating places of historic interest. Other historic attractions include Chartwell, Hever Castle, Scotney Castle, Sissinghurst, Canterbury Cathedral and Rochester Cathedral, the second oldest cathedral in England.
>Fantastic beaches can be found along Kents coastline which boasts an incredible eleven Blue Flag awards. From the shingle shores of Dungeness (the largest shingle beach in Europe and home to over a third of the UK’s plant species) to the golden sands of Ramsgate (with the UK’s only Royal harbour), Kent has something to offer all types of beach lover. There are little sandy bays, such as Botany Bay in Broadstairs, where you can escape the crowds for a quiet moment or enjoy some good old fashioned seaside fun on Margate’s sandy shores where you can build sand castles until your heart’s content, enjoy a donkey ride or for a cultural experience, visit an exhibition at the Turner Contemporary. Beaches that have gained Blue Flag status due to bathing water quality, facilities and being litter free are: Botany Bay, Stone Bay and Joss Bay in Broadstairs; Main Sands and Westbrook Bay in Margate; Minnis Bay in Birchington; Herne Bay; Tankerton; Main Sands and St Mildred’s Bay in Ramsgate and West Bay in Westgate-on-Sea.
>A diverse array of attractions provide entertainment for all ages of a day and night. From steam railways to museums and art galleries to zoos, there will always be something to keep the children and adults entertained during the day. Why not visit a vineyard, take a tour of a brewery, visit the world’s most complete dockyard of the Age of Sail at Chatham or explore the Kent coastline and follow the Maritime Heritage Trail from Gravesend to Dungeness, taking in the smuggler’s haunts along the way. Once the sun goes down there are buzzy bars, night clubs, Michelin Star restaurants, country pubs serving Kentish ales and Theatres to keep you entertained.
