With the faint flutter of Spring in the air, the flourishing yellow daffodils, and the scattering of beautiful sunshine throughout the South East, there are many clear reminders that Easter is well and truly on its way. Children throughout the country are preparing for a visit from a bunny bearing chocolate eggs, and their parents are preparing for the foil wrappers and sweet chocolatey mess afterwards.
Here at Mulberry Cottages, we have been working tirelessly (and not at ALL snacking on chocolate eggs!) to seek out the top attractions in Kent for family fun. Below we have listed 4 of the top attractions that Kent has to offer for all the family this Easter:
• Port Lympne Safari Park and Zoo, Hythe, is one of Kent’s top family attractions, boasting 600 acres of land, the Port Lympne Mansion, and 15 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, not to mention being home to over 60 different species, including African Elephants and Black Rhinos. For a real family treat, why not try the African Safari Experience.
• Bewl Water, set along the Kent and East Sussex border, is a haven of outdoor activities. Based in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, there are plenty of things to indulge in, from cycling to riding, boat trips to fly fishing.
• Buckmore Park Go Karting, Chatham, provides a one of a kind driving experience at one of the UK’s most famous go karting circuits. Located in the heart of the Kent woodland, the circuit is the home of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamiltons talent, and is likely to produce a few more stars! Suitable for children as young as 4, this is perfect for an action packed family day out.
• Go Ape, Leeds Castle, is a high-flying, high-adrenaline, high-impact outdoor experience like no other. With spectacular views of the 9th century Leeds Castle, that are only available via this tree-top obstacle course, every “Ape” will leave with a bounty of memories. Be prepared for an exhausting day of zip –wires, bridges, wooden tunnels and kangaroo swings, all set in the forest canopy. For those feeling a little less adventurous, feel free to follow the trail from the safety and comfort of the ground.
