Things You Need to Do in Kent This Summer

In Kent, the list of things to see and do is almost endless. From family friendly attractions to delicious food and drink. There’s something for everyone in the county of Kent!

Dover Transport Museum

Dover is usually the start of a European adventure; however, the seaside town is home to many amusing attractions. For example, the Dover Transport Museum can give you an insight into the past with displays covering the Channel Tunnel, historic vehicles and Romany life. There’s also a large visitor operated model railway and taxi and bus hunt for the kids too.

Howletts Wild Animal Park

With the largest herd of African elephants in the UK, Howletts Wild Animal Park is perfect for people of all ages to watch exotic animals all year round. The park stretches across 90 acres of land, including everything from animal talks, live feedings and an education centre to educate you on the importance of conservation. If you like adventure and a challenge, don’t forget to visit the treetop challenge. An exhilarating high ropes course to test your nerves and strength!

Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway

For the past nine decades, the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway has been an integral part of the landscape of the Romney Marsh. The railway’s world famous 1:3 scale steam and diesel locomotives travel along the 13.5 mile track, allowing you to take in one of the largest shingle landscapes in the world.


Described as ‘the heartbeat of Margate’, Dreamland was once one of the UK’s best loved amusement parks. A campaign to secure £18 million in public funding to restore the site in 2003 and in June 2015 the site officially reopened. The ride line-up features some old favourites alongside some new additions including the Brooklands Speedway and the Wedgwood Tea Cups.
