Walkers in Kent enjoy a number of long-distance footpaths, including the North Downs Way, Wealdway, Pilgrims' Way and Greensand Way, and sections of them are incorporated into several walks in this guide. Routes starting at Tenterden and Penshurst wind through a typical Kentish landscape, characterised by orchards, medieval churches and oast houses.
Deal and Sandwich, featured on another walk, were once centres for smugglers, while walks along the cliffs of Dover and Folkestone evoke historic maritime events. In contrast, Romney Marsh and the Swale have a wild and lonely beauty which evoke a more contemplative mood.
28 circular, graded walks all tried and tested by seasoned walkers. The routes range from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, so there is something for everyone.
