Often referred to as the Garden of England due to the plentiful supply of orchards and hop gardens, the county has lush countryside, downs, wetlands and beautiful beaches to its credit. Kent contains four of the historic Cinque ports including Dover and it's imposing white cliffs.
You can take a walk along part of the 160 miles of Saxon Shore Way or a leisurely trip along the River Medway on a paddle steamer from the Historic Dockyard at Chatham. Perhaps a wander around Charles Dickens' Bleak House at Broadstairs or follow in the footsteps of Chaucer's pilgrims and pay a visit to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral.
For seafood lovers there is Whitstable, famed for its oysters. Another culinary treat is Lookers Pie the traditional meal of the men who once watched the sheep out on Romney Marsh. The marsh is now a great location to take a guided walk or cycle ride and see some amazing wildlife.
Those with a head for heights will find that a sunset flight in a Hot Air Balloon from Leeds Castle offers you a spectacular view over the beautiful Kent countryside.
If you wish to go further afield then Continental Europe is a short trip away via ferry or the Channel Tunnel.
