Despite the sight of the docks across the Thames in the far distance, the sense of isolation and solitude was a perfect break from the manic election campaigning of recent weeks.
A wonderful lush, varied and surprising "up and down" (for Kent coast) walk. It is 8 miles long and you go through woodland, meadows, arable fields, plantations, quiet country roads, white shell beaches, marshes and coast line. Weather was very warm but there was a cooling breeze. Only 50 minutes by car from East London.
The guide book instructions were a little unclear at times and may be outdated but head for "Saxon Shoreway path " sign at beginning to start the walk and if in doubt check the map.
A 8/10 walk! Recommended.
