February in Kent

Get outside in February with plenty to do in Kent. Snowdrops in woodlands, chilly walks, conservation, bike trails, photography, food festivals, greenwood skills ...

Wrap up warmly and pull on some sturdy boots as there are wonderful winter walks overs hills, along the coast or through ancient streets. See Explore Kent for some ideas and routes.

Snowdrops are begining to show their faces in many woodland areas.  A snowdrop trail at Hever castle is one of the many good places to see these little signs of the end of winter.  

Get involved with Nature Week at RSPB Dungeness. Big skies offer sights of migrating birds returning to the UK.

If you want something active there are plently of places for off road cycle trails in Kent. Choose from testing XC at Bedgebury or more family friendly routes, you can spin your wheels with not a car in sight.

Learn something new. Perhaps a study day in greenwood skills for adults or Forest School for the younger naturalists. Both through Kent Wildlife Trust.

Food festivals kick of early in the year in this corner of England. One of the first up is the Rye Scollop festival in mid February, just over the East Sussex border and well worth a visit.

Get out with your camera. Turner Contemporary in Margate are running courses in seaside and coastal photography. Pick a clear bright morning to take moody shots of an empty shore line.
