Kent may be well known as the Garden of England, but this name doesn’t even begin to describe how much there is for the whole family to see and do in this beautiful county. From historic castles to seaside resorts, it’s easy to see why holidays in Kent have become increasingly popular in recent years.
The historic cities of Rochester and Canterbury provide a wealth of beautiful buildings, great shopping and fantastic restaurants to visit. The cathedrals found here are famous around the world, and you can’t make a trip without stopping by to gaze in awe at the stunning architecture.
Elsewhere, the beach resorts of Margate and Whitstable offer all the fun and excitement that you would expect from the great British seaside. If you’re looking for the delights of the coast at a slightly quieter pace however, make sure to visit the harbours and marinas of Ramsgate. And what holiday to Kent wouldn’t be complete without a trip to gaze upon the striking white cliffs of Dover?
Castles and stately homes are plentiful here in a county that has so much land available. Kids and history enthusiasts will enjoy a trip to Hever Castle, Leeds Castle, or Dover Castle where they will get a real sense of what life was like in medieval times. Fancy a trip to the zoo? Howletts Wild Animal Park and Port Lympne Wild Animal Park will give your kids the chance to walk on the wild side and come face to face with many exotic and endangered species.
