Things to see and do in Kent
Kent’s beautiful natural landscapes have led to the county being labelled the ‘Garden of England’. From Brockhill Country Park to the stunning gardens of Lower Leas Coastal Park with its adventure play area and amphitheatre, the White Cliffs of Dover are one of England’s most famous sights. Dungeness National Nature Reserve is another must-visit in the county for nature lovers.
Haysden Country Park and the nearby Tonbridge Castle are two more spots to tick off your to-do list, as well as Oare Marshes Nature Reserve and Oare Gunpowder Works Country Park, which are both close to Faversham. Whether you’re exploring country parks like Lullingstone, Trosley and Leybourne Lakes, or visiting landmarks such as Canterbury Cathedral and Leeds Castle, you can also look forward to days at the beach over the summer months.
There are lots of excellent schools across Kent, with top primary options including St Mary of Charity CofE and Ethelbert Road Primary. Both of these schools are rated as outstanding by Ofsted, while Dartford’s Gateway Primary Academy has been named as one of Kent’s best choices for younger children.
St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Primary in Tonbridge and Chilton Primary in Ramsgate are also great options, while top secondaries include Faversham’s Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Maidstone’s Invicta Grammar and Ashford’s Highworth Grammar. You’ll also find a host of high-performing grammar schools in places like Tonbridge, Rochester and Dartford.
Kent transport links
If you love being active, then Kent’s cycle network provides the most scenic way to get around the county. You can also use a comprehensive selection of bus and rail services, with towns offering the best access to London among the most popular places to live.
Access to the M25 and M20 motorways is also desirable, while the M2 also runs through Kent, between Rochester and Faversham. The county is a great crossing point for heading over to the continent, thanks to Dover to Calais ferry services and Folkestone’s Eurotunnel.
The Kent property scene
Kent has a strong property market which can yield excellent future returns on investment. Whether this is a key consideration or not, you can find some wonderful new build homes in places like Faversham and Ashford.
From contemporary to more traditionally-designed houses, Canterbury is another great area where new developments in Aylesham offer everything from 1 bedroom apartments to 4 bed family homes. Our advisers are waiting to speak to you about your move, and they can tell you about initiatives like our Movemaker when you call up today.
