Kent

5 days 4 nights

Known as the garden of England, this county is an excellent choice for a variety of study options

Many people rush through Kent en-route for the Channel Tunnel and Ferry Ports, this is a shame, as there is so much to see and do in this beautiful county.  Kent offer a wealth of  historical sites such as Leeds Castle and Dover Castle and Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest Christian churches in England. The coastal town of Margate, home to the Turner Contemporary Gallery, celebrates the life of the painter as well as hosting a continual changing programme of events and the charming town of Whistable, a favourite haunt of artists today and throughout the centuries are wellworth exploring.
