Exploring Kent

Kent offers acres of exposed cliff tops, lush countryside and beautiful woodland to explore, and because of the close proximity of towns in the Thanet area, many activities and attractions can be reached on foot, by rail or by bicycle from a base elsewhere. Disabled access is generally good at most major attractions. Local bus services are generally reliable and frequent, and regional railways offer good connections around the towns and back to the capital city of London. Trains in the area are run by Southeastern.

It is possible to hire a bicycle once you are in Kent if you prefer to cycle rather than walk but do not have the ability to bring a bike with you. Many country trails also permit horse riding. In total, there are well over 600 miles of bridleways available to horse riders, and it is possible to hire a horse in the area or ride at one of the many local equestrian centres.

A special Kent Greeters scheme is available for anyone who would like to meet someone from Kent and get to know the area with a one-to-one guide. The Kent Greeter service is totally free of charge and allows visitors to see the local countryside, towns and famous sights through the eyes of a long-term resident. Kent Greeters also take visitors on scenic walks and can offer tips on places to eat and visit during your stay. The Greeter service must be booked online five days before you intend to visit.
