Family looking at Dinosaur at Maidstone Museum

Family Attractions in Maidstone

Are you looking for something to do with the family?

What would you like to do on a family day out or family holiday?

You can find great family attractions in Maidstone that will provide entertainment for the whole family.

It can be a challenge to find places to visit that will satisfy everyone.

However you can choose attractions that not only provide fun but can be educational so even the grown up 'kids' will enjoy them too.

History Can Be Fun

Leeds Castle is a great place for children to have some fun whilst absorbing some of the fascinating history.

Within the castle itself children can follow clues and search for answers as they go through the castle's rooms.

There is plenty to entertain everyone in this family attraction from the daily bird of prey shows, to the extensive children’s play area designed as a fort where kids can pretend to be a knight or princess.

Help is on hand if you can't find your way in the wonderful grotto maze and there are lots of places to have your picnic.

It is great value too, as your ticket enables you to return as many times as you like in a year.

A favourite place for families to spend some time is in Maidstone Museum and the Bentlif Art Gallery.

Children love to hear the dinosaur roar and the Egyptian mummy holds a fascination for visitors both young and old.

In the school holidays regular craft and interactive activities make sure there is always something new to do, and of course the grown-ups will also enjoy the fascinating galleries and special exhibitions.

Animal Antics

Getting close to animals can be very rewarding and the Kent Life Heritage Farm Park provides the opportunity to get close to the farm animals.

From the time the baby animals are born you can see and handle the lambs and piglets and watch them play.

This fascinating family attraction also provides tractor trailer rides, children's play areas and the chance to see some of Kent's farm heritage buildings restored and dressed as they were during different periods of our history.

More Family Fun To Be Had!

As well as attractions there are lots of activities and entertainment that you can take part in that will appeal to families.

Have a look at our family fun pages for some suggestions.
