If you're looking for something to do with the family this Easter weekend then why not head to the Kent Downs for a lovely walk? The Kent Downs have a great variety of walks for everyone where you can leave the roads behind and set off to discover nature at it's best.
Starting in Farnham, Surrey and finishing in Dover, Kent, follow the Pilgrims Way legendary route on The North Downs Way National Trail. On this 142 mile walk you will discover some of the finest aspects of the Kent Downs. There are lots of circular walks that you can access from the rail and local train stations to help you discover the local heritage, landscape and history of these down land villages. A series of leaflets, Train Rides to Ramble have been produced by the Kentish Stour Countryside Project. These leaflets feature circular walks from down land railways including Wye, Chilham and Charing. You can find out more on these walks from Explore Kent.
Find other great walks from The White Cliffs Countryside Project which include the Royal Military Canal, the Magic of Romney Marsh and the Dover Walks. You can get more information on these walks and plenty of other nature trails around the White Cliffs area from the White Cliffs website. The historical town of Faversham has four new walks in and around the town as a part of a local, sustainable tourism project.
If you aren't local to the Kent Downs and want to spend some time discovering them, there are two tour operators, Orchard Trails and Walk Awhile Holidays. They can help you organise your walking holiday so you get the most from your visit. For further information on walks in the Kent Downs head to Explore Kent.
