/ Come and Explore the England Coast Path in Kent!
In July 2016, the first two stretches of the England Coast Path were opened in Kent between Camber (near the East Sussex border) and Ramsgate, providing a continuous and varied coastal walking experience for the first time. The route provides views of the finest coastal landscapes that the county has to offer including the shingle spit at Dungeness, the White Cliffs of Dover and the sweeping inlet of Sandwich Bay.
The next stretch of the coast path between Ramsgate and Whitstable Harbour is due to open in 2018. This will embrace yet more fine scenery with chalk cliffs, sandy bays and shingle beaches, and many places of interest along the way. Whether it’s the history, geology or wildlife that excites you, this stretch of coast has a great deal to offer. Much of the route is along promenades, making the coastline here particularly easy for everyone to access and enjoy.
The opening of further stretches of the coast path west of Whitstable along the Swale, Medway and Thames estuaries, including the Isle of Sheppey, will follow over the next couple of years.
When complete the England Coast Path will create a 2,700 mile long National Trail around the whole of the English coast, the longest of its kind in the world.
