We have picked five great ways to enjoy the lockdown from the safety of your own home in Kent

Watch live animal webcams

Watch penguins, elephants, pandas, koalas and meerkats enjoy feeding time and playing live on webcam from the comfort of your home. We’ve gathered some of the best ones from zoos and reserves around the county - there’s even a live puppy cam!

• Stream a stage show, musical or concert online

Social distancing doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all the glitz and glamour of the stage. Now you can stream lots of your favourite musicals, concerts or ballets online. Check out our roundup of some of the best.

Watch a film or TV programme set in Kent

Spot Chatham Dockyards which is used in many films including Les Misérables (2012), Children of Men (2006) and The Mummy (1999). Penshurst Place makes an appearance in The Princess Bride (1987) and Dover Castle can be spotted in Into the Woods (2015).

Do some traditional Kentish baking

From gypsy tart to traditional Kent rolls, huffkins, and Kentish cherry batter pudding, we have gathered nine traditional dishes and explore the origins of each one.

Watch some old videos of Kent

We have gathered some charming vintage videos from British Pathé which depict little snippets of Kent’s history.
