Two areas of outstanding natural beauty means that there are some fantastic walks; discover the Medway Valley Walk, explore the 153 mile North Downs Way for glorious countryside and plenty of history, or stroll along the coast taking in the White Cliffs of Dover.

We recommend taking the 6 mile wildlife walk around Chesterfield and along its canal, the route through Birchen Edge, Chatsworth and Dobb Edge or if you want a real challenge, tackle the 268 mile long Pennine Way.
