  11. Go Ape can be surprisingly good in the rain, because the trees keep the rain off and often you can have the forest to yourself.

  12. Shopping
    Maidstone is a great place to do some shopping or a little retail therapy. There is a good selection of High Street stores but an impressive collection of independent shops, with great customer care and product knowledge. There are four in town shopping centres and out of town shopping as well.
  13. Luxurious Spa Breaks in Maidstone
    If you’re looking to escape the stresses and strains of modern life and treat yourself to some total rest and relaxation, a spa break could be the perfect answer.
  14. Especially for the grown-up's. Try a spa day or a wine tasting tour.

  15. Hush Heath Winery
    From the 4th July Hush Heath Estate will be open for tours and tastings. We will be open from 11am-5pm, 7 days a week. (10.30am for guests booked onto our morning tour) We are also delighted to offer a range of fabulous sharing platters for you to enjoy with your glass (or bottle!) of Balfour wine. We can't wait to raise a glass with you! Hush Heath Estate has been following government guidelines closely and have been working hard to ensure the appropriate protocols are in place for us to be able to welcome you back safely! With over 400-acres to explore and our wildflower meadows in full bloom, now really is a great time to visit. Our COVID-19 protocols can be found on our website.
