Scenic Driving In Kent

Unfortunately, here in Britain, car enthusiasts often think they have to go overseas to get a really good drive in. Whether it’s the autobahns of Germany or the mountains of Italy, each year motorists from all over Britain migrate in the search of the perfect stretch of road.

If you ask us, we think that’s a bit too much hassle; there is some fantastic driving to be done right here in Kent, and that’s exactly what we’re going to be showing you today.

So, without further ado, here are our top 3 favourite scenic driving routes in Kent.

Stone Street

Driving through a mountain range is all well and good, but if the roads are too bendy you’ll hardly be able to focus on the scenery, and is that not the point of it all? So, we give you Stone Street, an old Roman road that carefully meanders from Canterbury down to Junction 11 just off the M20. For the most part, the road is completely straight, allowing you to take in the nuggets of pastoral excellence that pass you by, like a quaint village or an old mill. There are a few sweeping bends to look out for though, and if you plan on driving at the speed limit, keep in mind that there are a number of villages where the speed limit changes from national to 50mph.

The road can be a tad busy during the day as it’s one of the major linking roads in East Kent, but given the current climate, you probably won’t have to worry too much.

A ride around Thanet

When you think of the Kentish coastline, you might first think of Dover or Whitestable, but we prefer the road less travelled. If you do a loop around Thanet, passing through Ramsgate, Broadstairs and Margate, you’ll be pleased to find some of the most pleasant roads in the county. We definitely recommend heading to Herne Bay and passing through the Monkton nature reserve too, giving you and your passengers the chance to spot rare birds and wildlife.

The Tunbridge Wells Circuit

Kent is often referred to as The Garden of England, and when you take a leisurely drive around Tunbridge Wells, it’s easy to see why. We recommend taking a long, winding route that starts at Groomsbridge and weaves its way all the around the outskirts of Tunbridge Wells, right the way across to Hawkhurst, before making your way back up to Tunbridge.

On the journey, you will see some of the best scenery that England has to offer. Leaving the Georgian houses of Groomsbridge behind you, the route will take you into some densely-wooded areas that are famous for wild deer, so make sure you keep your eye out (but also, you know, on the road).

It doesn’t stop there though. Along the way, you will also have the opportunity to stop at both the historic ruins of Bayham Abbey and Scotney Castle, two must-see heritage sights that are bound to keep you energised throughout your journey.
