#findyourspace and EXPERIENCE more in Kent

We're working with Visit Kent, Explore Kent and many others to launch a brand new EXPERIENCE project that brings together incredible local businesses and activities within our wonderful countryside to create new sustainable tourism itineraries.

We hope this will encourage locals and visitors to discover the many special spaces, wonderful walks, knowledgeable locals and eco-friendly businesses that want to welcome you to the Garden of England.

You'll soon be able to take part in amazing local activities like learning to make beer or pizza with local herbs, practice yoga on the beach, take a llama for a walk, or hear about Kent’s chequered and sometimes gruesome past with our expert guides. Sign-up for updates and be first to #findyourspace and EXPERIENCE more outdoor in the wonderful Kent Downs AONB when restrictions allow.
