3 Top Coach Destinations To Travel To From Dartford
Sometimes it can be nice to get away. If you have that itch to escape Dartford, why not get some friends together and explore one of these fantastic destinations?
Isle of Sheppey – 36 Miles Away From Dartford
The beautiful Isle of Sheppey lies off the East coast of Kent. Separated from the mainland by a channel of water called The Swale, the island is a gorgeous change of pace to Dartford. From Viking attacks to dutch occupation, Sheppey is steeped in both maritime and natural history.
If it’s exploration you’re after, then there’s plenty to explore around the coastline, or the edenesque Elmley or Swale nature reserves. Alternatively, you can visit the bustling sea-side town of Sheerness, where there’s a plethora of restaurants, shops and bars to satisfy an array of tests. If you’re looking for a mixture between the two, then head to the quaint village of Warden for a quieter experience.
If you’d like to escape Dartford for the day, you can see the sights of Sheppey with Guideline’s executive or mini-coaches.
