Once a separate kingdom, and England’s oldest county, Kent has an enthralling past. For centuries Kent has seen it’s fair share of conflict, including the Battle of Britain during World War II. The result is a compelling collection of castles, historic houses, maritime heritage and traditional country cottages. Despite Kent’s close ties with heritage, there is plenty to see and do for all ages. The gorgeous 350-mile coastline is home to an abundance of wide sandy beaches, blue flag coves and secluded bays. Kent’s Victorian seaside resorts such as Margate, Ramsgate, Whitstable and Broadstairs are enjoying a pleasing renaissance.  Alternatively, the medieval Cinque Ports of Dover, Hythe, Romney, Rye and Sandwich with their historic architecture, local shops and restaurants are each worthy of exploration.

For foodies Kent does not disappoint. Michelin-starred restaurants, world-class wineries and classically brewed beer can all be found in the many towns and cities. Being next to such a magnificent coastline also helps, as you will find lots of just-caught fish and superb oysters and mussels. With all that, cosy pubs, food festivals and continental cuisine you won’t be going hungry for one night of your holiday. When you’re not enjoying the food during the evening there are hundreds of places to shop during the day, including the popular Ashford Designer Outlet. Because of its deep historical roots it’s not all modern chains and shopping centres at Kent; venturing down the history-thick lanes of Kent’s towns and cities, such as Canterbury’s medieval streets, reveals independent stores selling everything from the latest labels to fascinating and quirky antiques.

The world’s busiest passenger port, the Port of Dover, has strong links to France and Belgium. So, if you fancy a change for a day all you have to do is get on the ferry to experience something completely different! The location of the port means it is always in easy reach and makes an ideal getaway for the whole family. Calais, Le Touquet, Little, Bruges or Dunkerque… the list is endless when planning a day to drip to Belgium or France from Kent.
