Kent, located in South East England and known as the "Garden of England,"[1] is the closest ceremonial county to continental Europe, sharing borders with Essex, Pas-de-Calais (France), East Sussex, Surrey, and Greater London.[2]

It boasts historical significance, being one of the first British territories settled by Germanic tribes and housing Canterbury Cathedral, the oldest in England. With a rich industrial heritage, including reliance on its ports for warships throughout history, Kent now thrives with agriculture, logistics, tourism, and high-income industries due to its strategic position between the capital and mainland Europe.
