A week in Kent – the Gardens and Pubs (2006)

Kent is known as the Garden of England because of its warm climate and fertile soil. Famous are its quality products: Kent's beer, strawberries and apples, oysters of Whitstable. Kent has more listed buildings and a longer coastline than any other county in the UK. Whatever you are looking for, Kent will surprise each and every one of you.
