About Kent

As one of the Home Counties, Kent in South East England is a lush green county dotted with 26 castles and fortifications which represent its important history in defence and peacemaking.

There are around 17,000 listed buildings in the county and many of these are open to the public, making the county a popular tourist destination.

Locals are spoilt by the incredible coastline which includes the iconic White Cliffs of Dover, and much of the county is made up of the North Downs and High Weald Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As well as stunning countryside, Kent incorporates busy urban areas such as Canterbury, Dover, Royal Tunbridge Wells and Dartford. Much of the county is in the London commuter belt making it a great place to live for city workers.
