Established in the 19th Century by John Powell Powell and his successors, Quex Park is an historic country estate of over 1,800 acres in Birchington-on-Sea on the stunning Kent coast near Margate. Quex Park has in more recent times developed a bespoke leisure destination for all the family to enjoy. Within the Park there is a Children's Indoor and Outdoor Play Centre, a Craft Village, a Garden Nursery, Quex Carriages, Quex Paintball, Build-a-base, Laser Rush, Quex Barn Farmshop and Restaurant and in the summer, a giant Maize Maze along with a packed and exciting annual events calendar for the whole family to enjoy. One of Quex Park's best known visitor attractions is the Powell-Cotton Museum, Quex House & Gardens, which attracts visitors from near and far to engage with its eclectic mix of world-class natural history, World Cultures and Asian art. Its natural history collections are of world-class importance as a scientific resource. The Museum as well as Quex House and Gardens are open to the public and is one of the best things to do in the Canterbury area. Within the grounds there is also a beautiful wedding and functions venue Mama Feelgoods Boutique Cafe Entry onto Quex Park is free, and each leisure facility that makes up the destination has its own opening hours and admission fees where applicable. Please see the Quex Park website for further details. Visit us today and expect the unexpected at Quex Park
