For a unique insight into hidden Canterbury, step aboard one of the Canterbury Historic River Tours. These 40-minute, person-powered trips see you propelled down the idyllic River Stour, taking in a tiny chapel-crowned island, a Dominican priory, a ducking stool and memorable cathedral views. Delve into the historic city further with Canterbury Guided Tours.
A tour of one of Kent's world-class vineyards is a heady treat. Drink in views of vine-lined hills, inhale fermenting grapes and enjoy a tutored tasting at Chapel Down Winery, and Biddenden Vineyards. You can explore the county's cider tradition at Biddenden too.
Kent's famous hopping heritage is revealed on the 80-minute Shepherd Neame Brewery Tours. See mash tuns, taste artesian mineral water and sniff those hops; then finish by sampling a sip or two. While at Brogdale, the home of the National Fruit Collection, expert-led and self-guided tours wind past currants, blackberries and gooseberries, cherries and plums, apples and pears
A St Peters Village Tour is alive with costumed characters - from vicars and militia men to reprobates and old maids. Entertaining explorations from this award-winning group include the original village ramble, and themed WWI and WWI tours.
For a salt-dashed, sea-sprayed introduction to Kent, head out on a boat trip along its compelling coast. Ramsgate-based Horizon Sea Safaris run seabird and sea-spotting trips as well as voyages which take in everything from smuggler's caves to ultra-modern windfarms. The boat rides run by Bay Blast in Herne Bay guide you round the Kentish Flats and the county's iconic WWII sea forts. Back on dry land, Kent’s Blue Badge Guides are waiting to provide a wealth of expert insight in a wide range of locations.
Or experience all the thrills of the African savannah in rural Kent. Port Lympne Wild Animal Park offers experiences ranging from behind-the-scenes animal encounters (opt for tigers, gorillas, primates or rhinos), to ranger-led, VIP, Land Rover Safari tours.
