Places to stay in Kent

Affectionately known as the Garden of England, Kent is known throughout the world for its blue flag beaches and glorious countryside, with over 180 gardens in the region. History lovers will also be wowed by the region's array of castles and cathedrals, with the villages of Chilham, Wye and Challock in particular offering a fantastic insight into traditional English life. Classic British country pubs are also commonplace, should you need to unwind after a long day's walking, while the county is also home to such attractions as Biddenden Vineyard and Turner Contemporary Art Gallery.

Five Free Things To Do In Kent

White Cliffs of Dover
As one of the country's most spectacular natural features, the White Cliffs of Dover are undoubtedly the biggest draw for tourists visiting the region. A cliff top walk is highly recommended!

Chart Gunpowder Mills
The Chart Gunpowder Mills in Faversham was one of the first such factories in Britain, and has now been restored and is fully working. Fun fact: powder produced here was used at the battles of Trafalgar and Waterloo.

Turner Contemporary Art Gallery
Turner Contemporary is a visual arts organisation based in Margate that aims to make art open and accessible to all. The space was designed by the award-winning David Chipperfield, and houses a variety of temporary exhibitions.

Margate Old Town
Just around the corner from the Turner Contemporary is Margate's Old Town, the bohemian capital of this seaside town. Featuring a wide array of artists' studios, galleries and shops, it is an area made to wander round and get lost in.

Biddenden Vineyard
Biddenden Vineyard is the oldest in the whole of Kent, and offers visitors free tasting throughout the year. On selected Saturdays, visitors are also invited to special tours where you will learn how they produce their award winning ciders and wines.
