Dartford is a Kentish town famous for the nearby Dartford Crossing. It lies 18 miles south-east of Central London within an area known as the London Basin.
Afternoon Tea in Dartford is well worth your time, with many venues providing the finest brews and scones. Once home to Mick Jagger and Kieth Richards, members of the Rolling Stones, this lively area has much to offer.
The first residents arrived in prehistoric times – around 250,000 years ago! Similar to today, the first human settlement was a prominent river crossing-point during the Roman era.
Centuries later, the Saxons established the first community precisely where Dartford now stands. In 1415, King Henry V marched through Dartford en route to the Battle of Agincourt.
Although predominantly a commuter town for Greater London, Dartford remains culturally important. Why not visit the Orchard Theatre, Darenth Country Park or the local Borough Museum? Otherwise, there’s always the option of enjoying one of the town’s Afternoon Tea Dartford venues. You won’t be disappointed!
