About Kent Greeters UK
We are volunteers enthusiastic about the places where we live and want to share Kent's highlights, hidden gems and heritage with everyone!
Our Kent Greeters UK programme is an exciting initiative initially inspired by Lynn Brookes and the Big Apple Greeters. Founded on the Isle of Thanet, Kent in 2007, our Greeters are enthusiastic volunteers.
A Kent Greet can add value to any visit creating a unique experience. We welcome small groups of visitors from home and abroad as a friend not a guide. As a friend our welcome is free, our reward is sharing the places where we live with everyone.
Kent Greeters UK are members of the Global Greeters Network.
Kent Greeters UK provide a warm welcome - for a group of up to 6 people who are family and friends. 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 to meet with a greeter they will take great joy in imparting their local knowledge about the heritage and culture of the county whilst adding myths and legends of the area. If visitors have a specific request, and tell us when booking, we may be able to find a greeter with similar interests. Our Greeters are flexible, 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.
