Kent and Sussex

Kent and Sussex Welcomes You

Kent and Sussex are two counties in southeastern England and just a stone’s throw from London

Kent’s rolling hills, fertile farmland and cultivated country estates with fruit filled orchards is a feast for the eyes and a joy to explore. The region’s soil is predominantly chalk, meaning you’ll find vibrant and colourful chalk grassland on your travels, where orchids and similar plants love to thrive. And, don’t forget to make time to learn about Kent’s rich historic past. The ancient cathedral city of Canterbury will keep you busy as you learn about its Roman walls, Chaucer’s medieval tales and see where Marlowe penned Elizabethan plays.

Discover East and West Sussex. A historic county in South East England formerly an independent medieval kingdom. It is bounded to the west by Hampshire, north by Surrey, northeast by Kent, south by the English Channel.

Stretching across Sussex is the South Downs National Park. With Winchester in the west, Eastbourne in the East and London only an hour away, the South Downs covers an area of over 600 square miles. Characterised by rolling chalk downland, ancient woodland and picture-perfect villages containing the secrets of thousands of years of settlement from prehistory to Caesar’s conquering forces. In contrast, take in the seaside city of Brighton, with its vibrant beach life and quirky lanes, leading on to the iconic white chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters

Sussex has captivated some of Britain’s greatest literary and artistic figures, from Jane Austen, to Rudyard Kipling to the Bloomsbury Group and Virginia Woolf.
