Hush Heath Estate

2 saves

Maidstone, United Kingdom • Recommendation • 

English wine has improved exponentially and is now highly regarded. Visit the Hush Heath Winery and try it. Along with Jakes cider made from their own apples and tasty charcuterie platters. Lovely walks round the estate and three free wine samples in the lovely tasting rooms and terrace overlooking the vineyard.

Royal Military Canal

1 save

Folkestone, United Kingdom • Recommendation • 

The Royal Military Canal was constructed to help fight off a Napoleonic Invasion but is now a place where you can have a peaceful and scenic walk or hire a boat and go for a row. The canal is easily accessible in Hythe, an attractive town with a good beach. Every two years since 1898, the town has hosted the Hythe Venetian fete with a floating procession. The pictures show August 2019
