Top 6 Things to do in Kent
As much as I am the kind of person who loves doing nothing, I also really love going out and doing things. As long as it's my idea...
I am Kentish born and bred and I love that I don't have to go far from home to find something fun to do. I am also the kind of person who doesn't mind going to the same places over and over - although I love new things too - and these are my personal favourite Top Six Things to do in Kent.
Spoiler alert; I have only been to some of these places once (cons of being with someone who likes to go somewhere different all the time) but I absolutely loved my time there and would go again, which is why I'm recommending them!
The Light Cinema, Sittingbourne
Starting with what is literally the best cinema ever; The Light Cinema in Sittingbourne. There are Light cinemas dotted around but I have only been to the Sittingbourne one. It has the most comfortable seats ever - I highly recommend the loveseats - and is generally a really nice place to be. It's actually on two floors, with the cinema, bar and restaurants upstairs. So what is downstairs? Only a bowling alley and an arcade - whaaaat? Unfortunately I haven't tried out the bowling alley yet but the cinema itself is just *chefs kiss.*
Perry Wood, Selling
If you love a woodland walk, Perry Wood is the place to go. I have only been once so far, and it was a short trip as Charlie spent the whole time complaining but it was a really nice walk otherwise! I would definitely love to go again and check out a different trail.
Josh took me to Rochester for our 2 month anniversary and I absolutely fell in love with the town. It's really historical and some of the shops are really cute! Unfortunately we haven't been back since but it's definitely somewhere I'd love to go back to!
Wildwood Trust, Herne Bay
Wildwood isn't as large as some of the other wildlife parks in Kent but it's definitely my favourite! It's also a lot less hectic and busy than the others so if you suffer from social anxiety, I would definitely recommend Wildwood for a nice day out. Even in the rain, I love Wildwood.
Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest
Bedgebury Pinetum is another gorgeous place for a walk, if you're willing to pay £14 for peak-time parking...
It has a walking trail and a separate cycling trail if that's more your speed, and it's dog-friendly. I would definitely love to go again but I'd want to go at Christmas to see all the lights! Unfortunately it seems to be fully booked this year - maybe in 2022!
Rare Breeds Centre, Ashford
The Rare Breeds Centre is an ideal day out for kids and it's probably one of my favourite places to take Charlie. He loves farm animals but, surprisingly, the guinea pigs were his favourite part last time we went.
If you'd like to see more of my personal trips to these places, they are all filed under A Page in Our Adventure Book - you may even find some other places to check out under that tab!
Until next time,
