You could let the seasons inspire your visit. A carol-filled, candle-lit, Dickensian Christmas at Rochester; a fragrance-laced spring flower display at Hever Castle. Or be drawn by food and drink: the Whitstable Oyster Festival; the apple and cherry festivals at Brogdale.
Alternatively, time a trip to coincide with a must-see exhibition - perhaps at Margate's Turner Contemporary or Chatham's No1 Smithery. And Kent's diary is packed with other don't-miss events themed around art, comedy, dance, food, festivals, live music, theatre and performance, sport, gardens, guided walks and tours, history and heritage, nature and the great outdoors - there are almost countless things to do in Kent today.
