Taste the spray from the sea. Stroke wild ponies. Smell apple blossom. Take a pint of local ale with pastoral views. Rediscover you. Within hours you can, in Kent.

There aren’t many other places where London is so conveniently near, and yet feels so far away. Kent provides everything from very modern art exhibitions to very old heritage places. From romantic, short weekend breaks to entertainment-filled family trips. From relaxed, luxury spa breaks to fantastic cliff-top hikes. You're not going to be stuck for things to do in this great county. With its very fast links to London, Brussels and Paris, some people go right through Kent without thinking about it. But those who know about it appreciate that there are a thousand reasons to slow down and investigate.
