You’ll soon see why Kent is known as The Garden of England!
Kent, in the south east corner of England, has always been an important and vibrant place to live. In the ‘front line’ during centuries of conflict, its ports and dockyards were always busy, and good communications links between London and the coast benefit residents today.
In Canterbury, history is all around you. The cathedral was founded in the 9th century, and Chaucer’s pilgrims set out just a few hundred years later. Today the city is thriving and attractive, with excellent shopping, entertainment and places to eat and drink.
Along the Thames estuary, the historic Medway towns, there's a wealth of things to see and do. At the heart of the county, The Weald is a region of ridges and valleys which form the characteristic landscape of Kent, with the North Downs ending at the White Cliffs of Dover.
Orchards and hop gardens are very much in evidence, with several major stately homes and landscaped gardens to visit, and the traditional seaside resorts of Margate and Ramsgate make a grand day out.
And it’s grand to come home to your own Churchill retirement apartment, wherever you choose to live in Kent.
