Welcome to the Swale Area of north Kent
Respect, protect, enjoy our part of the Garden of England safely and responsibly during the Covid 19 pandemic.
We know that following the new and updated guidance from the government, allowing wider access to our beautiful outdoor spaces, you’ll be keen to get outside and blow away the cobwebs. Our number one priority right now is ensuring that people are able to enjoy our glorious county in a safe and responsible way; looking after ourselves, one another, and the landscape around us.
Respect local people and their space and they strive to welcome you safely and gradually adapt to a world with social distancing
Experience award-winning beaches on the Isle of Sheppey and our historic towns of Faversham, Sheerness and Sittingbourne. Explore pretty villages nestled in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a vast expanse of marshes, nature reserves and country parks.
'Know Before You Go'
Most importantly as we gradually move out of 'lockdown' please enjoy our open skies, spaces and fresh air safely, always check venue, event or accommodation websites before travelling to avoid an unnecessary journey.
Be aware that during the pandemic national and local guidance may change at short notice with new social distancing measures and opening times that may impact your proposed travel arrangements.
Be inspired by some of our feature articles and lastest news below providing snap shots of just some of the activities, attractions and places to see just one hour from London, the channel coast and within easy travel distance of most of Kent's tourism honey pots.
