self drive tours

Tour the county that guarded Britain

Guarding the shortest sea crossing to Europe, Kent has been on the frontline of England’s defence for centuries, and this role came to the fore in both World Wars.

Enjoy this self-drive tour for ten whole days from our exciting Frontline Kent itinerary, or choose days out to suit your own time frame. You’ll find a compelling mix of daring missions and surprises (what was Dumbo doing on Romney Marsh?), tales of ingenuity and heroic human spirit.

For a short day trip, pick a day from the list below, or enjoy all of them as a self-drive ten day tour!
