Thanet from the air
Thanet is an under appriciated but nevertheless beautiful part of Kent with a long history of offering a warm welcome to visitors.

The Isle of Thanet

The Isle of Thanet lies at the most easterly point of Kent, England. Once Thanet was separated from the mainland by the Wantsum Channel which was about 600-metre (2,000 ft) wide. Today Thanet is no longer an island but it keeps the name because it is that brill.

Archaeological evidence shows that the Isle of Thanet was one of the major areas of Stone Age settlement. A large hoard of Bronze Age implements has been found at Minster-in-Thanet; and several Iron Age settlements have also been unearthed.
