Kent's peak travel season is generally in high summer when the sun is often shining and rain is less likely. July and August, in particular, are popular periods to visit, especially along the coast. The entire period from May to October, however, is fine. You'll likely find pleasant temperatures and limited rainfall. Certain attractions swell with numbers around school and public holidays - so plan your visits if you want to avoid crowds. While winter can be a treat in Kent, the countryside is hit or miss. You could find crisp and sunny days or moody, muddy walks. However, Dickens-inspired festivals take part in Broadstairs and Rochester, along with many other festive activities. Most attractions remain open year-round, but some see reduced hours in the off-season.
