10 for the weekend – wondering what to do in Tunbridge Wells?

wondering what to do in Tunbridge Wells

Wondering what to do in Tunbridge Wells this weekend? We have 10 suggestions below both locally and further afield! Enjoy…

♥ Lower Ladysden Farm in Goudhurst are opening their Dinosaur Maize Maze this weekend! Tickets need to be booked in advance here. At the time of writing, there are still tix left for this weekend. Check out their PYO strawberries and farm shop with delicious treats too.

♥ Barnett’s Wood Nature Area – Just off Powdermill Lane in High Brooms this is a lovely place for a forest walk and in addition, there’s a natural playground with a basket swing and timber activity trail, located near the picnic area. This map might help.

♥   Step back in time at The Historic Dockyard Chatham which is jam-packed full of summer fun since it re-opened on 25th July! With a fantastic range of attractions, iconic buildings and historic ships to explore, tickets need to be pre-booked.

♥  Indulge in some family fun at Knockhatch, an adventure park with a petting farm, owl sanctuary, indoor and outdoor play areas and more!

♥ Had a busy week? I know I have! Take it easy and relax at home. Maybe go for a walk near to where you live? Or pop over to your nearest green/common and throw a frisbee around before heading back home and getting involved in one of these fun activities to do in the garden with kids?

♥ Go boating at Dunorlan Park! Why not stay local and enjoy some time out with Dunorlan Park Boats on the lake? For opening times and prices please visit their website. A guaranteed afternoon of fun. We visited Dunorlan the other day for the first time of ages and it did not disappoint!

♥   Fancy a family bike ride? Explore The Cuckoo Trail, a 14 mile surfaced path through the Sussex countryside that is traffic free (although there are a few roads to cross over on the way) and a safe route for walkers and cyclists of all ages.

Pooh Sticks Bridge – I‘m still surprised at how near the Ashdown Forest and Winnie-the-Pooh land is to us! Pooh Sticks Bridge can be found just beyond the village of Hartfield.  Read more about our visit to Pooh Sticks Bridge here. Visit the newly renovated tea rooms at Pooh Corner and their vintage sweet shop too!

    Try out the new slide at Crusoe’s World in Groombridge Place and watch the popular birds of prey show. Ask about the new flexible family and friends ticket available for £25 which covers 4 persons but must include at least one child under 12. Visitors are asked to pre-book online.

♥  Fancy a day at the beach? Consider a visit to Dymchurch. It’s a lovely seaside resort with a long sandy beach and lots to do for the little ones. There are several cafes and a little funfair in addition to the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway. The beach at Dymchurch is mainly sandy.
