About

Sittingbourne provides an ideal base for walking, cycling, photography and other leisure pursuits.

You can choose from historic houses, museums and beautiful gardens or simply enjoy the fresh air in fascinating nature reserves and unspoilt woodlands. Cyclists following rural country lanes through attractive orchards and farmlands, small villages and the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty along the North Downs will find contrasting scenery to delight.

Or take a gentle drive in the countryside and see the picturesque timbered cottages in this, the world famous fruit and hop growing area.

The modern market town of Sittingbourne has a proud maritime and industrial heritage. Milton Regis, close to Sittingbourne, tells the fascinating story of the local paper and brick industrial past.
