St. Leonard's Tower
Sutton Valence Castle
Kent is the Garden of England - as well as our Home County. It contains probably the best cross-section of English Castles out of all the Counties (only really Northumbria comes close).
The position of the county as closest to the European Continent and on the main route into London has made it strategically important from prehistoric times.
The north of the county is dominated by the North Downs which sweep across the south of London, through the Medway Towns (where we all live) and past Canterbury to Dover where they form the famous White Cliffs.
In the centre of Kent is the Weald, the farming area which earned Kent its "Garden" nickname. The extreme south is the reclaimed land of Romney Marsh, Lympne Castle once stood on a cliff overlooking the English Channel.
