Challenging Countryside Walks
Kents’ long distance trails deliver wide horizons, stunning scenery, rich history and an exhilarating sense of freedom.
We have more than 4200 miles of countryside and coastal paths; creamy cliffs, rolling downland, mind-expanding marshes, sweeping beaches, sleepy villages, heritage-packed cities and towns – you can stroll to them all.
Really get away from it all on one of Kent’s long distance trails: The 153-mile, ridge-top North Downs Way winds through the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Chalk peeps from the soil beneath your boots and magnificent views frame the horizon on a route which echos the historic Pilgrims Way.
Tread the 108-mile Greensand Way through ancient woods, the Kent Downs AONB and bluebell groves, past magnificent historic homes, including mesmerizing Knole.
Or attempt the 160-mile Saxon Shore Way arches from Gravesend to Hastings through some of Britain’s most compelling coastal landscapes.
