Kentish countryside

Straddling the banks of the River Medway, the town lies within the beautiful Kentish Downs, surrounded by countryside and ringed by charming historic villages.

Less than an hour from London and the Channel ports, the borough is the natural place to stay to explore the unique Garden of England – to sample the local produce, shop in the vibrant streets and squares of the County Town, walk the Pilgrims’ Way, cycle beside the river, experience Kent’s biggest events, and visit many sites of historical interest.
