Kent offers a green and calm realm with rolling landscape, woodlands, fields and farmland as well as orchards, hop gardens and charming villages where flowers are taken very seriously. Kent’s castles alone offer a glimpse of England from William the Conqueror and earlier. Garden hunters will enjoy Scotney Castle. Considered to have one of the best gardens in the country, it surrounds the moated ruins of the 14th century castle.

Kent is also the home of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Kent Downs stretches from the Surrey border to the cliffs of Dover. It contains three river valleys and other distinctive landscape elements.

Along with an overwhelming amount of historical significance and amazing horticulture, Kent offers plenty of other things to interest and entertain visitors. The Wildlife Heritage Foundation with its Big Cat Sanctuary and the many walking tours through picturesque villages, rolling countryside and historic buildings are just a few of the attractions that make Kent a popular destination.
