Driving in and around Ebbsfleet

Ebbsfleet isn’t a town so much as a valley, west of Gravesend and east of Dartford. It sits in a crook south of the River Thames and is home to a Eurostar station which is perfect for people arriving in Kent from the mainland, whether residents or visitors – it spares them the need to go to St. Pancras and negotiate London’s busy roads.

It’s also well-connected with the A2 running through the area. This road heads west through the town of Dartford, through Bexleyheath and Welling, joining up with several London ring roads along the way. In the opposite direction, it runs past Gravesend and Rochester, becomes the M2 until just past Faversham and then is the A2 again, for Canterbury and the port of Dover, with its white cliffs.

Another key route close by is the A282. It can be reached from the A2 and you can take it north over the Thames via the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge – that connects with the M25 ring road. Take the other turn from the A2 and head south for the M25 and Sevenoaks. From there, move onto the A21 for Tonbridge with its old castle and the pretty town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. The same road takes you through the rest of southern Kent past the historic town of Battle to Hastings and the wonderful Kent coast.

From Tunbridge Wells you can also jump onto the A26, followed by the A27, for the wonderful city on the sea that is Brighton to the west, or charming Eastbourne to the east.

A quick guide to Ebbsfleet

Arrive in Ebbsfleet and, while there’s no town itself to speak of, you’re still in a part of England known for its natural beauty, its role in British history and proximity to London. Car rental in Ebbsfleet is your passport to the south-east and Kent’s many pretty and fascinating corners.

Make for the Medway

The Kent towns of Rochester, Gillingham and Chatham make up the Medway. Lovers of the works of Charles Dickens are in for a treat here, as you can trace much of his history here. He lived in and around Chatham as a little boy but it’s Rochester that he drew on most, outside of London, for his characters and buildings. On Rochester’s high street you’ll see plaques highlighting how Dickens worked them into his many novels.

Gad’s Hill Place, now a school, was a house that Dickens fell in love with as a child and later bought when he became a success. He died there in 1870, writing his last words in a Swiss chalet that stood in the grounds – it has since been relocated to the courtyard of Eastgate House. If you’re a true fan, go to Rochester in June for the three-day Dickens Festival.

The Kent Coast

From Ebbsfleet, you can head to the beautiful beaches of the Kent Coast, whether you go east or south-east. Stunning in summer, starkly wonderful in winter, they sit next to numerous towns and resorts. Check out Dover’s white cliffs, Dungeness’ wildlife, Margate’s resurrection as an art centre and Whitstable’s oyster mania.

At the latter you’ll find a fine piece of shingle beach but also quirky shops and markets. They’ve been harvesting oysters here for hundreds of years and you can sample some freshly shucked bivalves right next to the sea. More like sitting in someone’s front room than in a restaurant, Wheeler’s on High Street have just the four table but an array of sparklingly fresh seafood. It has been open since 1856 and dishes up oysters served simply or more experimentally – a Guinness tempura batter, say, or with soy, mirin and pickled ginger. Opt for a seafood platter or perhaps lobster lasagne.

The area’s other destination restaurant is in nearby Seasalter. The Sportsman is a thoroughly unpretentious pub that just happens to serve highly-acclaimed, Michelin-starred food. Oysters are to fore again, but so is confit duck leg with spiced roasting juices, brill fillet with smoked pork belly and their famed slip sole with seaweed butter. Refined food served with absolutely zero fuss.

A Canterbury Tale

There is no shortage of old castles and churches to explore here in Kent – Leeds Castle, for example, is a fantastic day out in itself – but few can compare with the magic of Canterbury Cathedral. The Archbishop of Canterbury leads the church of England from this Gothic masterpiece, on a site where a church was originally built in 597 AD, but then demolished and rebuilt in its current form in the 11th century.

The breathtaking interior houses medieval stained-glass windows, the shrine of Thomas Becket – killed here in 1170 – and other wonders such as St. Gabriel’s Chapel, The Quire and the tomb of the Black Prince.

Whatever brings you here, Ebbsfleet car hire puts you within easy reach of London, Kent and their many fine sights to see.
