Green Spacers Must Visit

2nd May 2022

Kent = the fourth best region in the world for 2022; that’s what Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2022 list has declared and so we’re declaring 2022 a must-visit year for our little corner of the world.

Kent’s Heritage Coast has dazzled Lonely Planet with its Area of Outstanding Natural Beaty, stunning sandy beaches, those chalk cliffs and a pretty inspiring creative scene. We know you’ve heard of our clifftop castles, our historic manors and more, but did you also know about our local food and drink?

Trust us, there’s a lot to surprise and delight in Kent, so be sure to make it your must-visit this year.

The finer things

We've been blessed here in Kent with a rather lovely amount of fine things - from our coastline, to...

Come autumn our cosy pubs welcome walkers with fireside lunches and local brews fresh from the brewery, and our castles and gardens are ablaze with Boston Ivy and golden hues.

Any location that’s been lauded by Lonely Planet has got to have some terrific views and walking routes, so we recommend bringing your walking boots and setting your sights on trails like the North Downs Way and Viking Coastal Trail before sinking your teeth into some of Kent’s finest food.

Better yet, we’re inspiring those crisp fall getaways with our autumn breaks ideas. Think cosy cottages, 5* luxury and spas to make you swoon.  Now that’s got to be something worth planning for.
