Holidays in the UK: Plan your next staycation!

From beautiful coastal spots like Margate and Broadstairs to quiet, cozy market towns like Faversham to culture capitals like Canterbury, the diversity of the Kent makes it a great place for a staycation.

Not only can local holidays cut down on travel time and spending, they also generally make for a more eco-friendly holiday.
