Things to know

Historical legacy

Manor houses, magnificent palaces and castles belong to the breathtaking collection of historical buildings. Cultural travellers will encounter sacred places such as Canterbury Cathedral, walk through medieval alleys where Winston Churchill already strolled or enter mansions such as Charles Darwin's former residence. Visits to the most beautiful fortifications in the country are highly recommended. They include Dover Castle, Leeds Castle, Hever Castle, Rochester Castle and Walmer Castle.

The Garden of England

Eleven of the 37 national parks in Kent create a spectacular landscape of hills, coniferous forests, salt marshes, mud flats, swamps and lakes. The green region captivates with regions like the Buckland Lake Reserve, the Oare Marshes Nature Reserve or the Dungeness National Nature Reserve. The colourful gardens of Kent, which present themselves with woods, roses, daffodils, watercourses or rhododendrons, are particularly attractive. A visit to Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Goodnestone Park Gardens or Bedgebury Pinetum is worthwhile.

In 51 B.C., the Roman general Julius Caesar named today's county the "Land of the Cantiaci" after a Celtic tribe.
