Kent Tourist Attractions, Independent Reviews Of Days Out In Kent

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.

What Is A Tourist Attraction?

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.

What Do We Include?

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.

Kent Life Gears Up For Vintage Car Show

There will be plenty of va-va-vroom at Kent Life Heritage Farm Park on Sunday 19 July when the award-winning attraction, near Maidstone, hosts a Classic and Vintage Vehicle Show.

Kent Life’s stunning annual display is once again expected to draw visitors from far and wide, who will be given the chance to vote for their favourite.

As well as admiring an array of fantastic vehicles, visitors can make a full day of it by exploring the attraction’s historic vintage village and discovering what life was really like in Kent’s rural past.

They can meet some of the animals in Cuddle Corner or take in the scenery with a tractor ride, before relaxing with a homemade cake in Dotty’s 1950s-styled tearoom.
