Places to explore
In the heart of Kent, Maidstone is a historically important settlement. Connected to neighbouring cities by the River Medway, it was part of the main route for pilgrims. It is home to heritage sites, including Leeds Castle, as well as countryside attractions, vineyards and villages.
While the the centre of Dover itself, which was badly bombed during World War II, is not much to see, the area’s famous White Cliffs of Dover are spectacular. The steep chalk cliffs offer excellent coastal walks, and (if needed) inspiration. Dover castle is a key point of interest too, that makes the port town a worthy road trip stop.
Isle of Sheppey
A small island off the coast of Kent, it has long been a popular holiday destination. It holds a rich maritime history and is the birthplace of british aviation. Alongside lovely beaches to lounge on, it has a great many number of marshes and wildlife spots.
