Paul O’Grady on Great British Escape

Paul visits his favourite parts of Kent in his Great British Escape series.

 

He said that all you hear about from the county is its lorry parks, but wants to share with viewers how “lovely” Kent really is.

In the first episode, Paul flies a Tiger Moth to see the country in all its glory, before visiting a beer hops at Castle Farm.

I love the place. If you ever watch the telly, there’s always Devon and Cornwall or the wild moors of Yorkshire. I think it’s about time Kent was given a fair hearing.

Where in Kent does Paul O’Grady live?

  • Ashford

Ashford, in Kent, is situated at River Great Stour, at the southern edge of North Downs. Paul has lived there for over 20 years.

Has Paul always lived in Kent?

No.

Paul was born at St Cath’s Hospital in Birkenhead, in Wirral, Merseyside.

His place of birth is more than a 4-hour drive away from Kent, so he has travelled pretty far from where he grew up.

After leaving his hometown in Birkenhead, he lived down south, and spent some time in London for several years.
