Popular Locations in Kent

The White Cliffs of Dover

It’s hard to imagine a more iconic part of Kent’s - and the entire country’s - coastline. The White Cliffs of Dover provide stunning views that look even better in person. A brisk walk along the cliffs will offer a glimpse of the Exmoor ponies. Exploring disused WWII tunnels within the cliffs and Dover Castle are also exciting options nearby.

Chartwell House

The impressive stately home of Winston Churchill and his family from 1922 still looks pretty much as he left it. Photographs, books and other personal items are all on display, as is a large collection of Churchill’s paintings. Outside, the expansive grounds offer lakes, woodland trails and a little brick playhouse that was built for Churchill’s daughter Mary.

Port Lympne

The Aspinall Foundation’s 600-acre wild park is home to more than 700 incredible animals. Where do we start with discussing the animals you can witness here? Black rhinos, Western Lowland gorillas, giraffes, tigers, leopards, lions, bears and much more - Port Lympne in Kent is an animal-lovers dream. This is especially true when considering that conservation is key, with many of the species here being classed as endangered.
