As Autumn takes hold, the Kent Downs AONB partnership is offering experiences to appreciate the Kent Downs as never before.
Their new tag line #UptheKentDowns is hoping to provide what visitors desire for all year round, unmissable, sensory, and immersive experiences, where you can ‘live like a local’ and enjoy your short breaks sustainably.
They are offering a number of experiences from visiting a microfarm, learn traditional Indian cooking in the heart of Kent’s woodlands, to classic survival challenges. You can even do a spot of laying on your back and relaxing amongst trees!
There are also a number of projects you can get involved with, to help maintain this beautiful landscape.
The AONB works in partnership with many organisations that work on the ground in the AONB. Their partners deliver projects from hedge planting to creating circular walks to preparing area action plans for key parts of the AONB.
The Kent Downs AONB offers dramatic views, vibrant communities, a rich historic and cultural heritage and diverse wildlife and habitats making it a worthy landscape for national protection. It is the eighth largest AONB and, along with the High Weald AONB, covers 33% of Kent’s land area providing a wealth of opportunities for people to explore, enjoy and benefit from this outstanding landscape.
