The orchards, hop fields and vineyards give Kent its reputation as the Garden of England. Kent has a rich sense of history and tradition, and is dotted with picturesque villages, imposing castles and stately homes. Hythe is one of the 5 original Cinque Ports and has a wide promenade, on a broad bay overlooking the English Channel. The town has a long history and you will find many interesting shops in its narrow streets.
Wednesday To Kent via a lunchtime stop in Maidstone.
Tours whilst at resort
a We visit Deal where an endless pageant of ships is visible from the sea front. Then continue along the coast via Ramsgate and complete our day with a stop in Broadstairs with its sandy beaches and delightful range of independent shops in the traditional High Street.
b To Canterbury, a city which has preserved much medieval character. Long stretches of the town’s Norman walls survive, built on Roman foundations and watched over by the Cathedral. Later we make a short stop in Herne Bay with its traditional seaside magic.
c A choice of 3 things today, all in the Rochester area. Visit the Historic Dockyard at Chatham, a stunning site with historic buildings, museum galleries, historic warships and a vibrant programme of events.
