Kent is a haven of breathtaking English landscape, hence the name ‘The Garden of England.’ From mysterious marshland to the dramatic white cliffs of Dover, from sleepy villages and bustling seaside resorts to historic castles and towering cathedrals, there’s no shortage of things to do in Kent.

Places to visit in Kent

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.

Kent's coastline is a beautiful place to visit all year round and the area of Thanet comprising Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs regularly boasts the most blue flag beaches in the UK. Find out more about the towns and villages that make up the Garden of England using our interactive map of Kent.
