Why we love Dartford
A town in the garden of England, Dartford unsurprisingly offers an eclectic variety of beautiful walks. Our favourite? It has to be the route starting from Darent Valley Path, that goes through the Kent Downs AONB, and finishes at the Greensand Hills. For a gentle stroll, Beacon Wood Walk is a true gem. Small in size, but mighty in substance, the Dartford Museum is perfect for families – a 13-minute drive away. With 20,000 items in collections that range from archaeology to history, there’s no better place to get a timeline of our town. Other culture spots? The Orchard Theatre and its drama-filled programme will always have you on the edge of your seat – a 15-minute drive away. A 14-minute drive away, art buffs will love the Stephen Oliver Studio and Gallery. For those big on fashion, it has to be the Bluewater Shopping Centre – another 15-minute drive away. Some of the other places that made it to our shortlist include the National Maritime Museum, Brooklands Lake, and Hall Place and Gardens.
