No short break would be complete without sampling some of the region's finest food and drink, so be sure to have your fill of each area's specialty produce. 

Along the way you'll discover a whole host of different dining options, from cosy pub lunches and gourmet meals, to the best cakes and treats to tide you over on an afternoon adventure. Pitch up along the coast and discover fish fresh off the line or enjoy the splendour of some of England's finest restaurants. Whatever you choose, be sure to raise a glass to the local produce. 

Known as the Garden of England, you'll find many of Kent's restaurants boast menus packed with produce from just a few miles away.

You'll have your pick of home-cooked, tempting meals in the Peak District & Derbyshire, so be sure to stop into one of the many country pubs along your travels.

The Essex coastline is the perfect spot to indulge in fresh fish and seafood. We recommend the oysters!
