Seniors Discover the Kent Coast

Less than two hours from London by train, the Kent Coast offers long stretches of clean, sandy beaches (many of them with the desirable blue flag status), secluded coves, and bustling seaside towns. Kent is known as the garden of England but also boasts many miles of coastline with famous seaside towns offering senior visitors lots of things to see and do.

A focus for senior visitors is the area from Whitstable to Ramsgate, taking in the colorful beach huts of Herne Bay and the traditional seaside resort of Broadstairs, with many beaches to be discovered along the way. Walkers can take off on a bracing cliff top ramble while exploring the 27-mile-long Viking Coastal Path, taking in smugglers haunts, and some of the oldest churches in England. Each of these towns will find you wanting to stay longer and to investigate every alley, every shop and every cobblestone street.

Garden of England Waiting for Seniors

Kent has an extensive and varied coastline, encompassing some stunning landscapes from the White Cliffs of Dover to the mysterious and haunting landscapes of Dungeness and the Romney Marshes.  You will discover the captivating essence of the Garden of England wending along lanes past lavender fields, orchards, vineyards and old houses. Be enriched by England’s oldest county, alive with its exciting past: visiting Canterbury with Chaucer’s pilgrims and Rochester with Dickens, following the maritime adventures that have shaped Kent from Roman invasion to World War II. Quintessential England. But also bang up to date with leading-edge galleries and theatre, Michelin-starred dining and entertaining nightlife giving you so many things to do.

Time to take in a few additional sites with YouTube.  You Senior Golfers will enjoy this site. Cherrio mate.  jeb
