Kent is a haven of breath taking English landscape, from mysterious marshland to the dramatic White Cliffs of Dover, sleepy villages and bustling seaside resorts to historic castles and towering cathedrals, there’s no shortage of things to do. The green, rolling landscape of this corner of the South East with its miles of woodlands, fields and farmland is brimming with orchards and hop gardens and dotted with pretty villages.
