Our hotels in Kent provide the perfect base for your exploration of this beautiful county. Kent is known as the garden of England, and this is born out by the lush countryside, reaching from the rolling North Downs, to the miles of distinctive historical coastline, and the mystery of Romney Marsh. Kent is a very pretty county, with an impressive legacy of castles, stately homes and gardens, including Leeds Castle, called The Loveliest Castle in the World because of its setting.
There is no shortage of historical connections - a famous incident lurks round every corner. Many famous visitors have left their mark. St Augustine stepped ashore at Pegwell Bay in 597 AD; Henry VIII had his first meeting with Anne of Cleves; Sir Winston Churchill had a personal retreat at Chartwell House.
Kent has a long history of being at the forefront of defence, as is evidenced by the numerous fortifications that can be found along the coastline. There are Roman coastal forts at Reculver, Richborough, Dover and Lympne, as well as the Norman castles of Rochester and Dover, to name but a few.
A stay in one of our hotels in Kent is sure to be interesting, and made all the more enjoyable by the exceptional standards of luxury expected from a Signpost premier hotel.
