Visitors regularly take short breaks in Kent to wallow in the famous towns like Canterbury and Rochester and to explore the green rolling hills, wooded valleys and far-reaching landscapes. Whether on foot, bicycle, road or horseback, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to a summer picnic spot or a crisp autumn stroll.
