Escape Hibernation Resized

Experience Kent

It’s time to start planning, start looking ahead and start dreaming of new places waiting to be found, gastronomic delights ready to be tasted, historic sites awaiting their rediscovery and trails yet to be followed. With over one hundred brand new adventures to be experienced in Kent, it’s safe to say we’ve got a lot to share this year.

From new ways to tour Kent’s icons, and festivals reimagined, to totally new (and at times slightly eccentric) experiences, a short break in Kent is all about fresh, safe, and innovative ways to explore our magnificent county.



Put your best foot forward, get that heart pumping, and escape hibernation once and for all with outdoor experiences that encompass everything from coast to countryside and wild swimming to foraging. Venture off the beaten track and onto a new pathway on paddle-boarding trips, pilgrimages and long distance rural trails.

Tantalise your tastebuds and let our foodie experiences inspire your next gourmet getaway with vineyard tours, cookery schools and distillery classes. Or spark that creativity on weaving workshops, floral masterclasses and jewellery making lessons on an artistic escape.



Turn the page to your own extraordinary, culture-fuelled story with architectural trails, art tours and historic gems captured through the lens. And escape the ordinary to discover axe throwing and treasure hunts for a break which, after months of repetition, finally offers the chance to expect the unexpected.

Rediscover shared experiences at reimagined events and festivals to make those unmissable memories and once again be a part of something of bigger. Or, because we all deserve a lot of indulgence, take the opportunity to slip into neutral, and leave those home workouts firmly on pause with forest bathing, yoga retreats and meditation. 

Excited to plan your escape? It's all ready and waiting in Kent...
