BOOK A GREETER FOR A FREE WELCOME
If you are visiting The Garden of England, the Kent Greeters can add huge value to your trip by sharing their local knowledge and tips with a bespoke FREE welcome, greeting you as a friend not a guide.
Kent Greeters are enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about the places they live in, and who want to share Kent's highlights, hidden gems and heritage with everyone! Inspired by Lynn Brookes and the Big Apple Greeters, Kent Greeters UK will provide a warm welcome to individuals or groups of up to 6 people travelling together. The group will be given an unscripted and personal view of the Greeter's home town. A Greet can range from a walk in an ancient city, town or village, to cycling or rambling through our beautiful countryside or along part of our 350 miles of coastline.
Whichever place you choose in Kent to meet with a Greeter, they will take great joy in imparting their knowledge about the heritage and culture of the county whilst adding myths and legends of the area. If visitors have a specific request when booking, we may be able to find a greeter with similar interests. Our Greeters are flexible, and are able to change the course of the walk as visitors' interests dictate. Although Greeters may not take their visitors into museums and attractions, they will talk about these places and suggest which may be of interest to their visitors. They can also help visitors with the best way to travel about the area and suggest the places to visit in other parts of the County of Kent.
We welcome small groups of visitors from home and abroad, and the service is completely free - our reward is sharing the places where we live with everyone. Teams of Kent Greeters UK can also welcome visitors at Kent events when hired by local councils, attractions, venues and more, and can hand out leaflets, give local directions and general visitor information.
Kent Greeters UK are independent guides and members of the Global Greeters Network, and are supported by Visit Kent. All Greeters are required to sign a charter committing to a high standard of customer service to ensure their guests have a safe, happy visit.
