Kent: The Garden of England & Top Destination in Europe

Posted by

Coming from Kent myself, I was pleased to find out that Lonely Planet put The Garden of England top of its Best in Europe 2015 list. The list focuses on the best places for family holidays.

Lonely Planet editorial director Tom Hall said: "The destinations have been chosen by our team of European experts. Some may be surprising, some are definitely under the radar, but all of them are great places to visit right now."

The list actually highlights two places in the UK as the best for family-friendly attractions but Kent is placed at number one. The list ridicules the idea that all Kent has to offer is the Dartford Crossing, P&O Ferries to France and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Lonely Planet suggests that Kent is "gentrified without losing its personality” and is growing in popularity due to this.

The guide actually focuses on the seaside towns of Broadstairs, Sandwich, Margate and Dover. They recommend soaking up the culture in Charles Dickens old stomping ground, taking in the view from the White Cliffs of Dover or simply having retro-fun on the sandy beaches.

The list also names Skomer off Wale's Pembrokeshire coast and the nearby Marloes Sands as ninth of the list of 10 top family destinations.

The rest of the list is as follows:
1. Kent, England
2. County Kerry, Ireland
3. Black Forest, Germany
4. Budapest
5. Vorarlberg, Austria
6. Aland Archipelago, Finland
7. Ibiza, Spain
8. Normandy, France
9. Skomer and Marloes Sands, Pembrokeshire, Wales
10. Bohinj, Slovenia
Alongside growing up in Kent and still visiting for weekend trips to visit friends and family, I also focus on placing professional locums in the South East.
