If you're looking for something cosmopolitan, Faversham, Margate and Whitstable are getting trendier every day – think contemporary galleries mingling with pop-up restaurants and vintage amusement parks. If you're not ready to hang with the hipsters, the harbours and marinas of Ramsgate offer a more traditional take on what a coastal town's all about. And what visit to Kent could be complete without seeing the white cliffs of Dover? If you want a day trip to thrill the little ones during your stay, try Howletts or Port Lympne wild animal park – they're home to elephants, gorillas, monkeys, tigers and leopards.
