10 Tunbridge Wells things to do this weekend!

Tunbridge Wells things to do_Viaduct Walk

We are excited to share ten Tunbridge Wells things to do this weekend, all in the great outdoors!

Wondering what to do in Tunbridge Wells and further afield over the weekend? Or indeed during the week if your kids aren’t back at school yet? We have a selection of things to do near Tunbridge Wells. Enjoy!

♥ Have you been to Teston Bridge Country Park in East Farleigh? Just four miles from Maidstone, we haven’t had a chance to visit but it has been recommended as one of several fun things to do in Kent, as well as budget friendly too! The carpark, toilets and cafe (for takeaway) are all currently open at the moment. Enjoy a rural reiverside walk and let me know what you think?

♥ If you don’t fancy the beach, then why not stay local and find some places to visit in Tunbridge Wells where you or the kids can paddle? A few of the places to visit include Southborough Viaduct, Pembury Woods, Dean Park in Tonbridge and Bewl Water. Look out for a blog post on this soon! 

♥ Groombridge Place has re-opened for the season and is charging just £5 entry per person. Several parts of the attraction aren’t yet accessible (which is reflected in the entry price) but the Bird’s of Prey Show is taking place daily at 12 noon and 3.30pm and there are some lovely woodland walks across the grounds. Find out exactly what is open and what is closed at Groombridge Place HERE.

More suggestions for this weekend…

♥ Let’s talk about the beach. Camber is a no-go area with complete gridlock each day, so if you are going to go to the beach, visiting a lesser known or remote beach would be a better option. You can read about 15 best family beaches in Kent and East Sussex here!   

  Continuing with the water theme, Wateringbury Bridge have kayaks and canoes for hire. I have also seen some lovely pics from Bodiam Boating Station. A great choice of outdoor things to do in Kent that are fun for the whole family.

Tunbridge Wells kids events and days out

  If you haven’t gone already, why not enjoy some PYO strawberries? Here’s a list of some of the places near to Tunbridge Wells and more places to go in Kent and East Sussex not far from our town too. At the time of writing this, Downingbury Farm is closing for a couple of weeks so they can replenish! 

Still looking for things to do in Royal Tunbridge wells or further afield?

  We can’t get enough of going for walks at the moment – another top Tunbridge Wells thing to do so long as we mix it up and avoid going to the same place too much. This blog post has over 30 walks in Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas to do with the kids. Now how do we choose?

  If you’re feeling adventurous, another option for things to do in Kent this weekend could be to visit Wingham Wildlife Park which has re-opened and is welcoming pre-booked visitors. One of few Kent tourist attractions I haven’t had a chance to visit yet, we are really looking forward to visiting this summer. As well as seeing the animals, I have heard the ‘Dinosaur Zoo’ is fantastic too. This is one of the highly recommended places to visit near Kent.
