Kent, or also known as the garden of England. In few other places is London so near, and yet feels so far away. Kent offers everything from ultra-modern art galleries to centuries-old heritage sites. From fun-filled family holidaysto romantic, short weekend breaks. From lazy, luxury spa breaks to exhilarating cliff-top hikes. You're never stuck for things to do in Kent. With its super-fast links to London, Belgium and France, some people speed straight through Kent. But those in-the-know appreciate there are a million reasons to slow down and explore.
Kent's heritage sights excel at evoking the day-to-day experiences of past peoples; rich and poor; famous and unknown. Gain insights into the lives of Churchill, Charles Dickens and Charles Darwin. Here you can roam the homes of lords and ladies, butlers and parlour-maids. Hop on a steam railway or take an intriguing guided tour, or wonder at the marvellous collections at the Powell-Cotton Museum.
