    Great Family Days Out in Kent

    For an extraordinary day out in South East England, Kent is a jewel you simply have to visit. Not only will you be mesmerised by picturesque landscapes and breath-taking views; fun and entertainment ripples throughout this attractive county too.

    Bird-watchers will revel in the beautiful creatures at Eagle Heights, and adults can keep their kids busy at the ever-popular Diggerland theme park. Not sure where you should take your family first? Here is our pick of the very best places to visit in Kent.


    Are you a kid at heart? Find your inner child at Diggerland and try out 18 different rides, including the new Sky Shuttle which offers incredible views across the park. You don’t need to book either; just turn up on the day and enjoy the ultimate adventure theme park experience!

    Children from as young as four years old can enjoy the thrilling activities on offer, which include go-karting, dodgems and various digger rides. Go ahead and fulfil that childhood dream of yours when you operate a mountainous JCB digger or dumper truck, and feel excitement like never before.


    What better way to spend the day than visiting Cyclopark in Kent? Whether you enjoy mountain bikes, BMXs or skating, Cyclopark caters for every member of the family.

    Take advantage of the stunning scenery as you glide over 6km of mountain bike trails. If some of your family members struggle on two wheels, you don’t need to worry: each trail is designed for different abilities, so anybody can get involved! Complete with a 340m first-class BMX racetrack, BMX Pump track, and a 600m2 multi-use games area, you and the kids will be ready for a sit down in the Cyclopark café after your day of adrenaline-filled adventure.

    Eagle Heights

    Get back in touch with nature when you visit the Eagle Heights. Breathe in the fresh Kent air, and see what the beautiful English countryside has to offer, when you visit one of the largest bird of prey centres in the UK.

    There’s plenty to see here: marvel at over 100 types, including falcons, hawks and owls, and get up close and personal with the creatures during their daily demonstrations. What’s more, farm animals, sled dogs, and reptiles are here too! See everything from pigs, to Arctic Foxes, to Siberian Huskies for a day out of real variety.

    Kentish Lady Cruises

    Imagine the sound of birds chirping in the distance and water gently lapping beneath your feet; this is what you can expect from a Kentish Lady Cruises experience. The tranquil River Medway and Maidstone River Park are best experienced on board the Kentish Lady, and you can choose from one hour and three hour trips to get the most out of your excursion.
