How exciting that the little bit of the planet where my wife and I live has been included in Lonely Planet’s list of the World’s Best Regions to Visit in 2022.
As part of Kent’s Heritage Coast, we have been placed fourth, alongside other regions, including Puerto Rico, the Atacama Desert and Iceland’s Westfjords.
Kent’s Heritage Coast was selected for its commitment to sustainable tourism and ambitions for the future whilst celebrating the past. The regeneration of the historic town of Dover and the work of Creative Folkestone have been highlighted as primary reasons to visit the area.
The region has also been honoured for its plans to establish a Biosphere Reserve and secure the Strait of Dover as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The unique combination of stunning landscape, historic architecture and creative energy has made our region stand out!
