Getting outdoors during this difficult time will be more important than ever for our wellbeing. Read our latest information and guidance for safely accessing the countryside during lockdown.
Who is ready for some summer fun over the next 6 weeks! We want to give you endless activities for you and the family to enjoy throughout the Summer Holidays, whether you are staycating somewhere in Kent or just looking for some inspiration for activities to enjoy over the Summer!
Many of us have been given the opportunity to enjoy and explore the great British outdoors. With most of us having a newfound love for the outdoors, but this also means the countryside has been pushed to its limits.
It is nearly official British Summertime, so that means one thing.... spending the foreseeable future outside enjoying the weather, nature and wildlife, walks and of course the pub gardens! We want to share with you some of our personal favourites walks to enjoy this summer which have some lovely pubs, restaurants or cafes along the way or to reward yourself at the end of a tiring walk!
It's finally here again… British Summertime! The best season of them all! We cannot wait to enjoy all the amazing days out, walks and cycle rides in the stunning sun, longer days, and warmer weather. During this stunning season, you will spot some beautiful nature and wildlife which enjoy the sunny weather. We want to share with you some of the most recognisable and beautiful signs of Summer!
As we move into the warmer and brighter months, some of us may find ourselves enjoying our gardens and outdoor spaces more! Whether you would like to encourage more spring wildlife into your garden or feel like you need an escape from the stress of everyday life, gardening is the answer.
From the sand dunes of Camber to the White Cliffs of Dover, the England Coast Path is a delight to walk, whether it’s the full length or a smaller section of it. Tackling the whole 66 miles of coast path can seem a bit daunting if you aren't a seasoned walker so Explore Kent has compiled an exciting collection of 8 smaller sections of the coast path, giving you the best opportunities to explore the stunning areas which you will walk through on your coast path adventure!
Exploring your local area is an amazing way to get out and active, but imagine being able to explore your local town on foot or bicycle and discovering the best of what the towns have to offer.
Active travel is fast becoming the ‘go-to’ method of travelling around our beautiful county. Whether you are beating the traffic in your daily commute or you are looking for a scenic traffic-free cycle route to share with your family at the weekend, you won’t be short of options available in Kent.
It’s finally here again… the wonderful summer holidays! Six weeks of fun exploring, walking, cycling and so much more! We know that finding things to do to fill the whole six weeks can be tricky and expensive, so Explore Kent have taken our popular Junior Walking Challenge and given it a new look for the summer.
Get ready for Wild World Heroes, this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, arriving online and in Kent Libraries this summer from Saturday 10 July to Saturday 11 September 2021.
