Kent is in the south-east of England and is one of the home counties.
It borders London to the north-west, East Sussex to the south-west and Surrey to the west, along with sharing borders of Essex via the Dartford Crossing. The channel tunnel and various ferry ports also provides easy travel across to France.
Kent is traditionally divided east and west by the River Medway. Hence the terms "Kentish Man" (west) or "Man of Kent" (east.)
The county is often referred to as the "Garden of England" because of its abundance of fruit-growing and hop gardens, along with simply stunning countryside.
But it doesn't end there! Kent has an array of stunning coastlines, including the infamous "White Cliffs of Dover."
Kent boasts two islands - the Isle of Sheppey and the much smaller Isle of Grain, both of which are popular holiday resorts.
Kent has an enormous range of visitor attractions, from historical towns, (Charles Dickens wrote most of his works in Rochester), through to wildlife parks, miniature railways, vineyards, cathedrals, (Canterbury and Rochester to name just two), along with THE biggest European shopping centre at Bluewater (for the shopaholics) and in a few years - will also be host to the biggest European Theme Park: located in Dartford - the huge £3.5B theme park is already being nicknamed the "UK's Disneyland." Its creators, Paramount, expect it to be open to the public by 2022.
