Long circular walks in Kent


Can anyone suggest any 15-25 mile long circular walks in Kent? Ideally a mix of path / road and off road?

Do not know if this is any good for you, here is a link from a walking club that I belong to. The link is to some long walks in the Southeast.

Oh how I envy you!

Go to your nearest Waterstone's and have a look at the travel section. They should have books and maps covering Kent. I belong to a group that uses a series of pub walk books--you park at the pub, do a circular walk, and end up there for lunch or dinner. Bringing a change of shoes is considered good etiquette, as the landlord won't appreciate muddy boots.

Whilst not strictly all within Kent, (the Tunbridge wells circular walk hops across the border into East Sussex) it's a great walk.


But there are plenty of other routes:

With a decent map it's easy to invent one yourself. While in Kent yesterday I did shorter walk off the cuff Wateringbury, Livesey Street (that was very muddy), North Pole Road (yes, really), Barming Heath, Barming, East Farleigh and back along the river to Wateringbury. Not quite 12 miles but rain was threatening! Very quiet roads for the most part. Livesey Street is a track. There are numerous signed paths in the area but all were extremely boggy.

Train from Tonbridge to Wateringbury and back.

It's perfectly possible to follow the Medway path all along the river between Tonbridge and Maidstone and take a bus or train back. That's 10 - 12 miles or so and might still be a bit wet after the floods earlier this year.

How about the Viking Coastal Trail?
