Kent - appropriately called the Garden of England - isKent location map English countryside at its best. A landscape of rolling hills, fields and wooded valleys, apple orchards, vineyards, hop fields, splendid castles, historic houses and magnificent gardens.

Kent is a deceptively large county sitting between London and the English channel. Both the Kent Downs and the High Weald are designated areas of outstanding natural beauty. For any garden lover, this is the perfect county to explore, with many historic gardens set in lush countryside with great seasonal variety. Wild bluebell woodlands in spring give way to rich summer colours and finally a russet, ochre wonderland in autumn.

A glance at any British Gardens map will confirm that mid Kent especially has a good concentration of gardens in a surprisingly compact area. In fact Kent has more stately homes, castles and gardens open to the public than any other region in Britain. Encouraged by the mild climate and fertile soil, there are an estimated total of 180 gardens to visit in the county.

The links on the left will take you to a selection of the best Kent Gardens that I have managed to visit so far. There are many more that I hope to add in the future.
