2. Dreamland

– This classic seaside amusement park is guaranteed to keep the family smiling throughout the day. With a retro feel, Dreamland is back to its best, with the iconic scenic railway at the heart of it. The park has a number of attractions as well as the rides, including a roller disco, arcades and a fun fair. Best of all, the amusement park now has free entry! You can pay as you go, meaning you can spend as much or as little money as you like.

3. Rascal Bay Mini Golf

– If you are looking to entertain the children on a budget, then Rascal Bay in Broadstairs is a perfect choice. The children will love this pirate themed, 18 hole adventure golf course. As well as pirates, you will encounter dinosaurs, waterfalls, a volcano and two rafts on this fun filled course. Once you have completed the course, Westwood Cross shopping centre is just down the road where you can try out one of the numerous restaurants if the mood takes your fancy!

4. Westgate on Sea

– This pretty coastal town is a lovely place to visit whatever the weather. If the sun is shining, there are two sandy beaches, West Bay Beach and St. Mildred’s Bay. Both are perfect for children, with soft sand, shallow paddling and café’s. If the sunny weather is not on your side, there is a lovely traditional cinema with quite possibly the most reasonable prices of any cinema in Kent. Carlton cinema shows a wide range of films in a comfortable old school environment.

5. Wildwood

– Between the historic city of Canterbury and the seaside town of Herne Bay, you will find this truly British wildlife conservation park. You can expect to see over fifty species of native British animals, including deer’s, wild boars and wild horses. On top of this, there are now two rescued brown bears! Plus, if the children need to burn off any excess energy after seeing numerous animals in their natural habitat, there is an impressive playground for them to explore.
