The Kent Website since 1999
Welcome to our current Kent tourist attraction feature, it is our latest new or revisited attraction so should contain all the up to date information. Follow this link if you'd like to visit our guide to over 60 of the leading Kent tourist attractions.
We have been visiting and reviewing places of interest in Kent, Medway and the surrounding area for over ten years. In that time some attractions have improved whilst others have become less important. We use our own judgement to decide the places of interest we feature here but we find that user comments are also a very important part in adding value to our reviews and listings. As such if you have a particularly good or bad experience with any local tourist attraction or place of interest we welcome your feedback. Where possible we'll include it on the relevant page and use it in our editorial thinking about which attractions we cover.
For the purposes of this guide to days out in Kent, anything that might be of interest to visitors to can be included. Everything from places of outstanding natural beauty, historic monuments and theme parks. Many of the attractions we feature have several different functions, for example Rochester Cathedral is an important spiritual centre and a focal point of the Church of England community in the diocese. It is also a magnet to visitors to the Medway town If something is likely to be of interest to visitors we're happy to consider it's inclusion in these pages.
Our coverage is pretty simple, where we visit an attractions and have enjoyed it so much that we'd like to return then we'd be prepared to include the attraction in our guide. If an attraction is strongly recommend by one of our users or is associated with some noteworthy event we may also include it. If we're not covering the kind of places you'd like to visit let us know, we can't realistically feature all of the thousands of tourist attraction in the area but user input influences our editorial decisions.
The latest review is below, it remains on this page in summary form and will then be moved to its own permanent page when we publish a new 'latest' review.
Stuck for ideas when it comes to celebrating your child’s next birthday? Want to ensure a great time for them and a stress-free experience for you? The answer can be found at Kent Life Heritage Farm Park…
The popular family-friendly visitor attraction near Maidstone has launched its first-ever Teddy Bear’s Picnic Parties.
The birthday parties run at the award-winning attraction at 10am and 1pm from November to March (winter party) and 10am, 1pm and 4pm April to October (summer party). A friendly party host is on hand for two hours to manage the event and make sure it’s a huge success.
Each child will spend time hand stuffing their own Kent Life Teddy Bear, helped by the party host. Once the bear is huggable enough, each child and bear will join in the wishing and naming ceremony. Each bear born at Kent Life will receive a birth certificate and special carry bag for their journey home.
Your group can let off steam in our all-weather play areas before they tuck into a yummy party tea with unlimited jugs of squash in an exclusive decorated room.
All bookings get special Kent Life party invitations with map and directions, and all invited guests bring one adult free, while the birthday child brings two adults free! Your entire group gets all-day entrance to Kent Life, with all children given special brightly coloured tabards to wear for the duration of the party.

Kent Life offers a range of party packages this year including feed the farm, groom a goat, Cuddle Corner, and Paint-a-Pot. Optional extras also include goody bags, animal feed, duck food and not forgetting the all-important refreshments for grown-ups!
Kent Life is a real working farm set in 28 acres of countryside so there are plenty of animals to see including pigs, sheep, ducks, goats and alpacas. In addition there’s a large indoor soft play area and much more to keep youngsters amused and entertained.
Wander through period dressed historic buildings in the Vintage Village, explore the gardens and orchard, and see the last remaining coal-fired oast house in Britain. There’s plenty to do whatever the weather! After all that exploration you can relax in the 1950s-inspired Dotty’s Tea Room and sample the delights of Kent Life’s fresh, local produce, including homemade cakes and a selection of tasty, filled jacket potatoes.
Kent Life is in Sandling, near Maidstone, just off J6 of the M20 or only an hour by train from London. For more information visit www.kentlife.org.uk
