Map sheet number 179 is an all purpose map packed full of information to help you really get to know the Canterbury & East Kent area. The 204 Landranger maps cover the country. Each map covers an area of 40 km by 40 km (25 miles by 25 miles) and like other Ordnance Survey maps, National Grid squares are provided so that any feature can be given a unique reference number. Highlights of the East Kent area include the E2 European Long Distance Path and North Downs Way which is 156 miles long and passes through the historic towns of Dover and Canterbury as well as plenty of quiet, open countryside. The ancient walled city of Canterbury is the home of the famous Canterbury Cathedral and Dover's scenic chalk white cliffs attracts tourists from across the globe. You may also wish to visit the traditional seaside holiday town of Margate with main attractions such as sandy beaches, a world-class art gallery and retro shops.
