Top Locations in Kent & Sussex
Kent is known internationally as the ‘Garden of England’ and it is a reputation that has been earned from its gently undulating hills, its rich hedgerows creating a patchwork of fields, flowery meadows and abundant orchards. Famed for its hops with the oast houses once used to dry them, it still supplies both large and micro-breweries throughout the county and there is now also a huge growth in vineyards particularly in the central region of the county. This is testament to the warmer weather in the South East.
The North Kent coast from Whitstable round to Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs offers a real vintage feel to a seaside holiday. Deck chairs, expansive promenades lined with gift shops and seafood stalls hark back to the 50’s. This stretch of the coast is currently going through a revival with Michelin starred restaurants, gastro pubs and chic cafes popping up. Further south, you will find medieval Sandwich then Deal and onto Dover and this is the gateway to Europe, where the White Cliffs and magnificent Dover Castle are certainly worth a visit. Heading inland, enjoy the café culture, shopping and abundant history in the City of Canterbury. Why not take a punt down the river Stour or go underground to the fascinating Roman museum - there really is something for everyone.
Sussex divided into East and West Sussex, featuring adorable villages and hamlets nestling in the South Downs. These wonderful counties in southern England support quiet rural countryside living and a lively, bustling, beautiful coastline. The range of chalk hills covers much of the central to southern part of the county and rolls down all the way to the coast. This is great rambling country and some magical walks can be enjoyed, along with the occasional diversion to historic oak-beamed pubs.
The Sussex coast features some very popular and well recognized cities and towns that not only provide fun-filled nights out but also bring a fashionable and cultural edge to this ancient county. Top of the visitor lists is the City of Brighton. Here you will be able to stroll down the à la mode Lanes, visit the famous Pier and then paint the town red (or rainbow coloured in Brighton’s case)! It offers the ideal city break by the sea - with its mix of traditional seaside holidays, buzzing city centre and nightlife means that Brighton literally has something for everyone!
Maybe a cottage break in the impressive hillside town of Rye with its pretty cobbled streets and eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and cafes will appeal or perhaps Hastings Old Town with its active fishing industry, famous fish and chip shops and promenade will fit the bill? A short drive will take you to Battle to take soak up the history of 1066 Country.
