One of the main reasons tourists come to Kent is to explore the outdoors. Explore Kent provide tourism consultancy to rural destinations such as hamlets, villages and small towns to help them tell the world what wonderful places there are to explore in the Garden of England.
What we do
Rural destinations in Kent make up the wonderful stops on a walk, the delicious pub lunches, the farmers’ markets and the tranquil places to stay.
Developing and promoting well marked, maintained trails are crucial to encouraging more people to discover your area. But doing it responsibly is a priority and so we always work with a sustainable tourism approach. When creating plans for an area, local factors such as; the existing footfall in the area, traffic conditions, existing and potential access points, and heritage interests are key considerations. We believe places should be established with the future in mind…
