Getting Involved

You are sure to love the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - we can't wait to welcome you!

You can visit and enjoy the area: 

The Kent Downs AONB has so much to offer! Whether you're passing through or staying a little longer, there is plenty of ideas. From a quick lunch in one of the many pretty pubs to tackling a walking challenge, there is sure to be something here that's just right for you!

Take part in exciting activities:

From orchard open days to learning traditional countryside skills courses, our events calendar has an exciting mix of year round events where you can meet others who love the Kent Downs AONB.  If it's a family day out you are seeking, there are lots of footpaths, cycle routes and bridleways just waiting to be discovered.  Alternatively bring a picnic and create your own fun in a countryside site, woodland or nature reserve. Our 40 Special Places will help you to plan your day or why not volunteer your time? You'll meet lots of friendly people and have a great time!
