Our 6 Top Favourite Views around Kent

With such stunning surroundings in Kent and so many incredible places to visit, it is hard to decide on the best place to start. Here is our list of our top six favourite view points. If you go in search of them, don't forget to take your camera!


White Cliffs of Dover 

The iconic white cliffs of Dover are instantly recognisable as a famous landmark of the British coastline. These high chalk cliffs are part of the North Downs ridge and look out over the Strait of Dover to France. Walking along the top of these huge ghostly white cliffs provides some spectacularly striking scenery.

Canterbury Cathedral

In the heart of Canterbury’s historic centre, and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site is the stunning cathedral, one of the oldest in England, and a dominating feature of the skyline. It is an important destination for pilgrims and the magnificent building is a combination of medieval architecture, stained glass and fine furnishings; it is beautiful both inside and out, with some sections dating back to the 12th century.

Margate Harbour

In the evening, as the sun is setting, walk along from the beach and look out over the stone pier of Margate Harbour Arm. You'll be able to enjoy the fantastic orange glow of a beautiful sunset stretching across the horizon, with the stark outline of the lighthouse silhouetted against it.

Kingsgate Bay

This little cove has a good stretch of golden sand and looks out across the blue waters to the east. It boasts some of the best sea caves in the country, etched into the white rock, and is nice and secluded. The bay is overlooked by Kingsgate castle which sits perched atop a cliff.

Leeds Castle 

A castle of some form or other has stood in position on an island in the lake of the River Len since the 12th century. This magnificent building now mostly dates back to the 1800s. Its extensive, beautiful grounds stretch back onto main land but the castle itself, on its little jut of land, protrudes out and is almost entirely surrounded by the huge moat. When viewed from across the lake at the north end, the castle looks as though it is rising straight from the waters.

Toys Hill 

This National Trust-owned part of the countryside is good for walks, with great views to admire. If you make your way to Octavia Hill's well via the way marked route, you can enjoy the incredible scenery stretching out before you from the designated viewpoint. Here there is amazing scenery out across the Weald of Kent and down to the Ashdown Forest far in the distance.
