Kent – “The Garden of England”
Kent has a history that goes back to prehistoric times, finds have shown evidence of human activity through all the major periods: Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman and beyond.
The county was involved in many of the earlier rebellions (14th to 16th centuries) and the Royal Navy first started using the River Medway as a base in 1547. A dockyard at Chatham was developed by the early 17th century. The fleet used this base during the 18th century in the wars with France, so that they could operate along the Dutch and French coasts (the action moved to Portsmouth and Plymouth later).
Much of The Battle of Britain took place over Kent during the Second World War and many “flying bombs” landed on the county.
Although Kent has been involved in many other industries, it is perhaps best known for its agriculture (especially orchards and hop gardens) and Kent is frequently referred to as “The Garden of England”
Reasons to visit Kent
Famous landmarks in Kent include the “White Cliffs of Dover” and the channel tunnel which connects England to France.
As a result of the earlier wars, Kent has many castles like the unusual Deal Castle (16th century), the medieval Dover Castle (12th century), Hever Castle (13th century), Leeds Castle (12th century), Rochester Castle, Scotney Castle (country house), Tonbridge Castle and Walmer Castle.
Other interesting places include Canterbury Cathedral, Rochester Cathedral, Brockhill Country Park, Isle of Sheppey and the Kent Battle of Britain Museum. There are also numerous Railways, Parks and ancient monuments.
