Kent, also known as the Garden of England, is a diverse county extending from Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells to the West to Margate, Deal, and Dover to the East. In between, major towns and cities include Maidstone, Chatham, Ashford, and Canterbury.

Kent is in the South East of England and borders the River Thames, the North Sea to the North, and the Straits of Dover and the English Channel to the South and East. Calais in France is only 34km from Dover and a short hop by ferry (or rail link via Eurotunnel). The County also has a long and diverse industrial and agricultural heritage.

Kent is full of historic places and sites to visit and enjoys large swathes of beautiful countryside and coastline. Kent is well known for fruit orchards, nut growing, hops, and local delicacies such as Whitstable oysters. The County’s heritage in fruit growing gives rise to many small and medium sized businesses specialising in both fresh and preserved produce including jams, jellies, chutneys, cobnut oils, and dressings.
