Kent Heritage Open Days – Part I

09.05.2016 - General

Heritage Open Days is England’s biggest history and culture festival, running from 8th – 11th September, with thousands of events across the country for four days in a row, and it’s all FREE.

Whilst on a break at Keat Farm this September, there are plenty of places of interest to visit where you can experience local history, culture and architecture in Kent.

So, plan your itinerary now! You can “staycate” in one of our holiday parks using them as a base to explore local treasures of every age, style and function, and take in the beauty of what Kent has to offer.

On the doorstep of our Quex Park you can step out of the present and into the past this September by visiting the amazing collection of the lives of Major Powell-Cotton and his family at the Powell-Cotton Museum in Quex Park, where natural history specimens and cultural objects Major Powell and his family collected on expeditions to Asia and Africa, are showcased for the general public.

For lunch, head down to Quex Barn Farmshop and Restaurant before exploring the beautiful surroundings of the 7 acre gardens. Here, top quality free-range meat, eggs, fish and vegetables are served at its best.

If the children need to expend some energy, why not stop at Jungle Jim’s, the Family Entertainment Area, where there is a large indoor soft play area, Nerf Dart Tags Arena, outdoor play area with climbing frames, swings, slides, a zip wire and falconry every day at 2pm (weather permitting). After that treat them with an amazing variety of home-made cakes and ice cream from the Cock-A-Doodle-Do Coffee Shop.

Perhaps Dreamland will interest you even more. Located in Margate, Dreamland is a Great British seaside amusement where visitors, both old and young from around the world are welcomed to experience what has been listed within the UK’s top 10 visitor attractions.

If you won’t have enough time, you can always go tomorrow.
