For a coastal visit, why not try Folkestone Leas Cliff Lift, which will take you to the top of the cliff to enjoy panoramic views of the English Channel.

There’s a reason Kent is known as the ‘Garden of England’ with plenty of sights that will take your breath away and walking trails to enjoy. Highlights include Elham Valley, the Royal Military Canal, Emmett’s Garden and plenty of other local spots for outstanding natural beauty.
