Kent Tea Room Walks

Kent Tea Room Walks

by: Michael Easterbrook
One of the best ways to explore Kent is with a scenic circular walks followed by tea and cake, and the tea rooms in this book are the perfect place to start or finish your adventure. All have been carefully selected for their individual character - there's one in a lighthouse, one with a collection of 8,000 teapots and several in historic buildings.

This is the 'Garden of England' and the 20 circular routes here, ranging from 2 to 5 miles, span the diverse landscapes that give the county its moniker. There are idyllic waterside walks and glorious coastal paths, such as those at Herne Bay and St Margaret's Bay; gentle strolls through the beautiful country estates of Penshurst and Knole; and dreamy woodland wanders at Ightham Mote and Westerham. There are also historical treasures to discover throughout, from stately homes and churches to windmills and watermills. Whether you choose to start or end your walk with tea and cake is entirely up to you.

The book is produced in full colour with lots of photographs. Each walk entry begins with a description of the terrain, Ordnance Survey Explorer map sheet references, starting point with grid reference, how to get there and parking and refreshment options. The following route finding instructions are laid out in precise numbered paragraphs and are supported by clear sketch maps showing the location of each paragraph number. Each walk includes full details of the recommended tea room including a telephone number and web address if available.
