Must Visit Ashford
When it comes to a great base to explore Kent’s Heritage Coast, it doesn’t get much easier than Ashford. Set in the heart of the Kent countryside, but with high-speed rail links that can whisk you out of the capital in under 40 minutes, it’s a perfect jumping off point when visiting our glorious county. What’s more, with acres of vineyards, picturesque villages and not one, but two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it’s safe to say this corner of West Kent has a lot to boast about.
Must Visit - English Heritage
Right in the heart of Kent’s Heritage Coast stands three of our county’s most iconic castles, Walmer, Deal and Dover. These castles have stood guard on the coast for centuries, and in the case of Dover Castle, stand right at the top of the White Cliffs that have been immortalised in song, literature and history. So, is it any wonder these three astonishing English Heritage fortresses have made it to our list of Kent’s must visits? Plan your break and start planning which of these icons is on your family’s hitlist (we recommend all three).
