Family-friendly coastal seaside resorts such as Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate have events calendars geared for keeping kids entertained whether it's during the holidays or for a weekend break.

There's plenty for adults too with castles, gardens and museums providing a year-long supply of exhibitions, festivals and seasonal entertainment, none more so than at more than a dozen National Trust locations in Kent which display the Garden of England in all its glory.
