A quick note on press trips:

Visit Kent hosts a wide range of national and international journalists, writers and bloggers every year, and can create press trips to suit your individual needs - whether you have a set theme and a precise brief, or just need some inspiration for a feature. We have excellent contacts across the county, and can nearly always find a new and exciting hook for your coverage.

If you're interested in participating in a Kent press trip, please email us with your name, contact details, publication, commission (including links and stats where available), trip preferences and deadline. 

*Please note that we can only offer press trips to journalists with a firm commission, and each press trip is measured on its individual merit. We will consider all requests, evaluating whether the publication, target audiences, circulation, reach and engagement are in line with our brand objectives and key priorities. As a not for profit organisation we do rely on the generosity of our partners, and are not always able to cover the costs of accommodation, food & drink, or travel. We will, of course, always endevour to support any press trip to the absolute best of our ability.

Celebrating Kent’s Heritage Coast for 2022… 

You may have heard the news already, but our very own slice of the world has been named as one of Lonely Planet’s ‘Best in Travel’ regions for 2022… globally! We're sure you’ll agree that this accolade represents a fantastic opportunity, not only to reinforce our position domestically, but also on the global stage. This news comes at a really significant time as we continue to welcome visitors back safely to our destination, offering a huge opportunity to share Kent’s story worldwide over the coming months. As the only UK destination to make the list, we hope that you too will want to shout from the rooftops with us about our inclusion here. We would love to hear from any journalists or content creators covering Kent's Heritage Coast in 2022, and hope we can work to support you on any relevant news stories, feature ideas, or press trips over the coming months.
