Tour England’s tastiest county and discover our vibrant local independent food and drink sector

Kent has been known as the “Garden of England” ever since Henry VIII tucked into a bowl of juicy Kentish cherries and developed a passion for the fruit. The lusty king, who knew a thing or two about good living, was also partial to fresh fish from Hythe and had fruit orchards planted at Teynham in 1533 – sowing the seeds that saw Kent grow into England’s apple capital.

Today, the rich soils, generous coast and friendly climate of the Garden of England continue to grow the most scrumptious produce, providing a natural larder for London and countrywide. So come on a gourmet tour to sample all that’s flavoursome and unique, digging into a deep-rooted heritage that blends sustainable, seasonal living with a true taste of England at its best.

Visit vineyards pioneering the renaissance of English wines, go behind the scenes at Kent’s wonderful craft brewers and explore picturesque landscapes dotted with iconic oast houses. There are oysters whose succulent reputation once lured the Romans to invade, cheese that is fit for a prince, and exciting new pubs and restaurants whose innovative chefs are cooking up a storm. Book all experiences on the trail or pick and choose from the menu!
