Summer is well and truly over, the kids are back in school and dare I say we are getting into some kind of routine? Events are understandably a lot more sparse than they were this time last year, but we still have plenty of suggestions for days out and things to do with the kids around Tunbridge Wells this weekend…
9 ideas for days out around Tunbridge Wells this weekend
♥ Go boating at Dunorlan Park while the weather lasts! This Saturday (5th September) is dedicated to the memory of Norman Matchett who passed away on the 14th July. The boats will be open as usual but all profits will go to the Hospice in the Weald or the RNLI. Dunorlan Park Boats are open on weekends from 10.00am – 4.30pm unless there is severe weather.
♥ See Wind in the Willows or Three Men in a Boat at Chiddingstone Castle’s Open Air Theatre on Saturday afternoon! All ticket holders for the performances can also get reduced price admission to the lovely castle.
♥ Indulge in some family fun at Knockhatch, an adventure park with a petting farm, owl sanctuary, indoor and outdoor play areas and more!
♥ Have you heard of the Imperial War Museum Duxford? We visited last September and it was fascinating. It is really well spread out so I would imagine it is easy enough to adhere to social distancing. Based at a historic airfield in Cambridgeshire, IWM Duxford took around an hour and twenty minutes to get to by car from Tunbridge Wells and after a fantastic family day out, we will definitely be returning again. I can highly recommend this place – if you are thinking about going, make sure you read our 7 tips for visiting with kids.
♥ Taking place at on the Outdoor Stage at Trinity Theatre this Sunday morning (11am), Wind in the Willows is a family-friendly interactive performance shimmers with big characters and big hearts. Suitable for age 4+ tickets can be purchased HERE.
♥ I feel like I’m always banging on about walks but sometimes it is exactly what my kids need – a long long walk to ware them (and us out). Obviously the more interesting and the nicer the scenery, the better! I have over 35 recommendations for walks around Tunbridge Wells and further afield here!.
♥ The Odeon Cinema in Tunbridge Wells has several ‘Super Saver’ showings each day. This weekend’s titles are Trolls World Tour and Onward as well as The Karate Kid. Tickets are £5.75 per person.
♥ Book yourself in for PYO Tulleys Sunflowers over at Tulleys Farm! This weekend is the last chance to do this for 2020.
