passionate about their local area of Kent and would like to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with visitors. Greeters welcome visitors from around the world and can help you find out the best places to visit, best places to eat, how to get around using public transport and teach you more about Kent’s rich heritage and history.

2. Take a Seashore Safari

Enjoy a seashore safari along the glorious Thanet coastline, and uncover all the intriguing facts about the creatures that lurk in our rock pools. You just never know what you might find on our beautiful coast.

3. Rochester Cathedral

The Cathedral became a major place of pilgrimage in the 13th century, following the death of William of Perth, a Scottish baker who was murdered nearby. His body was brought to the Cathedral and at his shrine, of which no trace remains, miracles were reported. Modern pilgrims who journey to the Cathedral still climb the Pilgrim Steps, now worn by the many thousands of medieval pilgrims visiting the shrine, often lighting candles at the William of Perth prayer-station in front of the oratory. Visitors who journey to the Cathedral today are direct descendents of those early pilgrims.
