With all the rain we’ve had recently, I’ve been thinking about the best places I’ve visited in Kent to avoid getting wet.
I’ve compiled my top picks here, but I’d love to hear your suggestions too!
Comment below, or even better, add your suggestion to the Things to Do section of Mumsnet Local Kent.
In no particular order…
Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery
Maidstone Museum is a gem, set in an Elizabethan Manor House with Victorian, 20th and 21st Century wings, there is much to explore. Free to enter, the museum offers a wide range activities for children (including sleep-overs!)
The Turner Contemporary is a dynamic visual arts organisation that believes in making art open, relevant and fulfilling for all.
The Beaney: House of Art and Knowledge
The Beaney is an art museum and library in the heart of the historic city of Canterbury. The activity trays situated around the museum have entertained both the adults and children I’ve taken here!
Kikiland Indoor Play Centre
Cross the border into Kikiland to spend time with the Kikibird and his friends in this wonderful tropically themed play area conveniently located in The Mall in Maidstone town centre. This is a really lovely place with different rooms to keep everyone happy!
It is well worth checking the Gulbenkian’s calendar of events. We thoroughly enjoyed every show we’ve been to at this child friendly theatre.
Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway
The Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway is a light railway in Kent, England.
The 13.5 mile line runs from Hythe and stops at Dymchurch, St. Mary’s Bay, New Romney and Romney Sands to Dungeness, close to Dungeness nuclear power station and Dungeness lighthouse.
Lion’s Den Indoor Soft Play
Brave the rain at Wingham Wildlife Park and if it gets too much, head into the Lion’s Den. It contains over 3,300 square feet of soft play fun, over 3 levels!
