Upper Upnor is a lovely village, with steep, cobbled streets and set on the banks of the River Medway. This is the ideal setting for enjoying an evening riverside stroll, taking in the sites of the boats and ships passing by. Following this, why not stop into one of the two pubs for a refreshing drink? Rochester is also nearby and is well worth visiting, with its impressive castle. Being the birthplace of Charles Dickens, Rochester celebrates Dickens' Week each year, where you will see costume parades and street markets.
Kent is affectionately known as the Garden of England. Its history and heritage provide the region with a rich array of sightseeing possibilities, while the stunning choice of Blue Flag beaches offer the chance to enjoy the beautiful coastline.
