Here’s a taster…
Delve into Kent’s past with 2for1 entry offers at the county’s most beautiful heritage sites. Learn about the famous siege at Rochester Castle or the Roman invasion of Dover Castle, and visit iconic Kent landmarks such as Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral. Play Lord and Lady of the manor at Penshurst Place and Gardens, or bring out your inner salty seadog with a trip to The Historic Dockyard Chatham. Hidden gems such as Chiddingstone, Upnor and Walmer Castles will enchant you, and National Trust’s 700-year-old moated manor, Ightham Mote, is a great setting for a summer stroll.
Keep the kids happy this summer with dozens of deals at Kent’s top family friendly attractions. Farming fun is on offer at Kent Life, or step back in time to join Geoffrey Chaucer and his companions at The Canterbury Tales. The wild at heart can come face to face with species from across the world at Howletts Wild Animal Park or join an African safari at Port Lympne Reserve and see giraffe, zebra, rhino and ostrich roam free on the Kent coast.
Art, Culture and Shopping
Kent is rapidly becoming a must-visit destination for art and culture enthusiasts, but it’s also the perfect place to indulge in some retail therapy and ‘me time’. You can visit the famous Turner Contemporary in Margate for free and get 10% off in the café and shop with your 2for1 deal. Film buffs will love offers available at The Gulbenkian cinema at the University of Kent, or why not learn new skills with offers on fabric printing and papermaking courses in Margate? Amidst all that culture, take a break to enjoy 10% off at Ashford Designer Outlet and 25% off spa treatments at Dover Marina Hotel and Spa.
The adventurous traveller is spoilt for choice when it comes to outdoor activities in Kent, with 350-miles of coastline and glorious rural landscapes. Bring a friend for a wild day’s karting at Buckmore Park, tear up the waves on a surfboard or jet ski, try your hand at kayaking or horse riding, or keep things mellow with a few rounds of golf at Hever Castle, Roundwood Hall or Sittingbourne courses. If you’ve ever wanted to try a new sport, the 2for1 campaign is a great way to get started.
Food and Drink
After all of that exploring, you’re bound to be a bit peckish – so make sure you bag a great deal on Kentish food and drink on your travels. Eating your way around the Garden of England is easy with 2for1; enjoy guided tours of Chapel Down Winery, Shepherd Neame Brewery, Hush Heath Winery and the orchards at Brogdale Collections, or enjoy 2for1 offers on lunch and cream teas at a range of beautiful cafés in stunning surroundings.
Whatever you choose to do by day in Kent, remember that the fun does not have to end as the sun sets! Book three nights for the price of two or enjoy generous discounts on your total stay at some of Kent’s beautiful hotels, self-catering cottages and unique accommodation. From indulgent spa hotels and quaint B&Bs to cosy shepherds’ huts in nature reserves and luxurious safari tents, visitors or residents looking for a special treat will find plenty of tempting deals.
Each offer has its own terms and conditions and all are subject to availability, so make sure you check the full details of the offer at www.visitkentoffers.co.uk before redeeming. Your travel ticket to Kent must be valid for the day of travel to your chosen attraction.
