Dover

— 1 night
Dover is a town and major ferry port in the home county of Kent, in South East England. On the 3rd (Mon), appreciate the history behind Battle of Britain Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Walmer Castle and Gardens, and then enjoy the sand and surf at St Margaret-at-Cliffe. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Kent Battle of Britain Museum, then steep yourself in history at Crypt of St. Leonard, then kick back and relax at Dymchurch Beach, and finally appreciate the extensive heritage of The Leas Promenade.

Garden of England
Located practically in London's backyard, Kent features a lush countryside dotted with thriving farms and fruitful orchards. Popularly known as the "Garden of England" due to its extensive agriculture, Kent has historically been the focal point for invasion attempts from Europe. In a fascinating reversal, the region is now a major embarkation point for tourism to mainland Europe. This area is also the beer heartland of England, with flourishing production of world-famous Kent hops, fine ales, and award-winning local wines, all of which are a must on your list of things to do here. The long coastline includes numerous beach towns and villages, many still retaining their Victorian charm. A holiday would not be complete without a visit to the pride of Kent, its celebrated Canterbury Cathedral, the most famous religious structure in England and a World Heritage Site.
