Out and about in Kent
Kent also known as The Garden of England, offers castles, gardens, beautiful coast lines, as well as countryside and quintessential English villages.
From Leeds Castle to Dover Castle, Walmer Castle to Hever Castle, Penshurst Place to Goodnestone Park Gardens, there is so much to enjoy and explore, you will never tire of this beautiful county. Children will enjoy Kent’s two amazing zoos, Howletts and Port Lymne Wild Animals Parks or many of the smaller animal farms. Coastal towns such as Whitstable and Broadstairs are within easy reach by public transport or car, and offer days of beach fun, wonderful sea food – Whitstable oysters! – art galleries and summer festivals. SouthEastern has many 2-for-1 offers to Kent attractions and restaurants.
Kent is ideally placed for a day trip to France to enjoy lunch or some great shopping in Calais. The Port of Dover with its many ferry connections (DFDS) Folkstone (Eurotunnel) and Ashford/Ebbsfleet (Eurostar) are within half an hour travelling time by car or public transport.
