The Ordnance Survey “Explorer” maps are available in standard quality (shown), as well as the tougher all-weather type.
Remember to look at our Long-Distance Footpaths and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty for more Kent guidebooks.
We welcome suggestions for inclusion.
“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 coast 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.”
– Pathfinder Kent Outstanding Circular Walks (Pathfinder Guides)
“Walking in Kent describes 40 circular day walks in the Garden of England. This guidebook includes routes ranging from 5 to 9 miles in west Kent and The Weald and north and east Kent. Encompassing woodland walks, clifftop paths and riverside rambles, there is something for everyone, from family strollers and determined ramblers. No specialised equipment or clothing is required. The guide includes easy-to-follow route descriptions, 1:50K OS map extracts, background information and a route summary table. It also gives outlines of 11 longer walks in the Kent area, including the Darent Valley Way, the Saxon Shore Way and the North Downs Way National Trail. Kent is a wonderfully diverse county and these walks explore every corner, from the estuaries of the Medway and to the vast sweep of the Weald with its historic villages, orchards, hop gardens and vineyards. But best of all, there is the surprise of long unhindered views and big skies over Kent, where Britain begins.”
