The climate of Kent (England)
Kent is also known as the garden of England. The county is known for its stately homes with large gardens. The soil consists of limestone and chalk; this is the material you find in the White Cliffs of Dover which are part of the North Downs formation. Kent is often the first sight of the UK for those who travel to Great Britain; whether you come via the Channel Tunnel (sometimes referred to as Chunnel) at Folkstone or by ferry to Dover. Kent has many beautiful cities, towns and villages well worth visiting. Canterbury with its beautiful cathedral, but also the lovely villages on the coast such as Ramsgate, Deal, Margate and Broadstairs. Kent has a sea climate. Where temperatures are concerned summer and winter are quite alike. During the summer temperatures are also being moderated by the influence of the sea. Rain falls all year round. Because of the influence of the sea the weather may change rapidly.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
