Free Kent Activities



There are some great things that you and the family can do in Kent without breaking the Bank. From beautiful country walks combining a picnic at one of the many Picnic Sites that Kent has, or a trip to the beach? Kent has some wonderful coastline and if it's fun by the sea you are seeking then you may want to discover Dymchurch, Margate or Broadstairs and if it is a bit of tranquility by the sea then perhaps Hythe or Tankerton would be more suited to you. Kent has both sandy beaches and shingle shores, cliffs and marshland by the sea, it is also home to the silent and eery Dungerness....all in all there is about 350 miles of shoreline that is waiting to be discovered. Standing on the White Cliffs of Dover is an amazing feeling, but be careful as your phone signal may divert to a French Network. Dover is an extremely busy port, but standing on the White Cliffs makes the whole port seem like a child's playground. Margate was a popular holiday destination during the 20th century with people spending the long summers there from London and beyond. Over the last few years it has undergone some amazing changes and hopefully will soon become as vibrant as in it's former glory days. Margate is home to the Turner Contemporary Gallery, which is the pivotal point of change in the Town. Who knows, perhaps Dreamland will actually be resurrected.

There are manu museums in Kent that still offer Free Entry including The Ashford Museum, Chart Gunpowder Mills in Faversham, The Hythe Local History Room and the New Hall Museum in Dymchurch. Combining a trip to a kent museum with a visit to a new town or village doesn't have to be expensive but can be extremely entertaining.

Towns and villages in Kent often hold yearly festivals that in some cases are free such as the Proms in the Park held annually in Maidstone's Whatman Park. There is often something exciting taking place in Rochester, including the famous Dickens Festival and the Fuse Medway Festivaland Gravesend hosts the annual Big 7 Festival that is also Free.

Kent Ideas is always scouring the county for some fantastic free events that are suitable for all tastes.
