This episode sees Paul head off on an expedition to explore Kent’s stunning coastline that stretches over 350 miles, hiding many surprising secrets. Paul’s escape starts in Dover Harbour where he boards a speed boat to blast along the iconic white cliffs.

In the fourth week, Paul visits places long on his Kent bucket list – iconic spots on his doorstep but where he’s amazingly never set foot before. He starts by heading off on a modern-day pilgrimage to the beautiful city of Canterbury. After failing to impress his pigs with a reading from ‘Canterbury Tales’, Paul follows the footsteps of Chaucer’s pilgrims by visiting the world-famous cathedral. He’s not here as a tourist though, instead he’s put to work helping out with roof renovations.

This episode sees Paul explore Kent’s beautiful forests – in fact the county is number one in England for the most ancient woodland. Covering over 10% of Kent’s bucolic countryside, Paul meets the people, and animals, who thrive in this stunning backdrop. First, Paul escapes to the Wildwood Trust just outside Canterbury – a wildlife conservation centre helping protect some of Britain’s most endangered animals.
