We are thrilled to announce that 2018 is a year of celebrations for the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Kent Downs Area is 50 years old and the North Downs Way, which snakes through the AONB, is 40 years old this year.


To celebrate plenty of free events and fun family activities are planned for 2018. There will be opportunities to get involved from apple days to rock pooling to birthday parties, pilgrimages, guided walks, art workshops and archaeological digs; something for everyone.

Iconic Kent Views

To celebrate our 50th Anniversary we’ve teamed up with the Royal Geographic Society’s Discovering Britain project to bring you the best views the Kent Downs has to offer.

A stunning new view is added every month throughout 2018.
