Kent is a county in the South East of England, bordering East Sussex, Surrey and Greater London. Across the world, Kent is known as the Garden of England because of its abundance of orchards and hop gardens.
Steeped in history – particularly because of its location between London and continental Europe, Kent has been in the front line of many conflicts, from the Battle of Britain during World War II, to early European and Roman invasion.
Kent’s coastline boasts an enviable range of blue flag beaches and exhilarating water sports. Just 35 minutes from central London on Southeastern’s high speed rail link, there has never been a more perfect opportunity to come camping in Kent!
All campsites in Kent offer plenty of activities and major attractions within easy reach including a hoard of medieval castles, including Leeds Castle - the loveliest castle in the world set on two islands on the river Len. The famous White Cliffs of Dover and abbeys, museums and galleries, steam railways, Diggerland and Buckmore Park Kart Circuit to name but a few.
With lots of activities available, and fabulous attractions to visit, camping in Kent is the perfect holiday choice!
