Top 10 Best Active Days Out in Maidstone

Sometimes a holiday can be all the better for doing something together, creating a shared experience or trying something new and challenging or better still doing something you have always wanted to do.

A few of the things Maidstone has to offer are listed below, but this is not an exhaustive list and activity can be anything from jumping with a parachute, high speed karting or to a wonderful walk on the top of the Downs.

Below are some ideas:

Go Ape - A high wire forest experince with lots of climbs, zip wires and balances.

Skydive Headcorn - If you would like to try a parachute jump then contact Headcorn Aerodrome as the training and jumps take place on a regular basis. Adrenalin is guaranteed.

Go for flight in Tiger Moth - This is a wonderful way to experience the Kent countryside and a flight in an open to the elements aeroplane is like nothing else and the Tiger Moth is particularly elegant and its name leaves you with no doubt as you drift back to earth like a butterfly.
