    We paid for the Christmas lights walkthrough and had a wonderful evening! It was easy to follow the route and we spent a good while in the food court/on rides for the children.
    It was heaving when we arrived, but we’d booked the last session so most people soon moved on, leaving us plenty of room to take our time.

    I attended the Owl experience with my two children. We booked the kids experience as well and its was absolutely fantastic. It was so well organised, the team are so friendly and their passion for the Owls is infectious.

    There arent many experiences where you get to hold a multiple of owls, fly them and have a one to one with the experts. If you book one thing this year - book the Owl academy - you wont regret it! Also its run by volunteers and its a charity. Money well spent on all accounts. I would go again.

    well done Kent Owl Academy - bloomin amazing.

    Wow what an experience making your own gin is! A faboulous few hours spent in an amazing Ginoasis in the centre of Maidstone. Excuse any typo/spelling mistakes but writing this straight after four gins is not easy :-)
    The Gin Making Experience is also a history lesson and having lived in Maidstone for over 20 years we did not know the fantsatic Gin History of the town.
    All the team were really friendly and helpful. A gin on arrival was very relaxing. The explanation of how to blend the botanicals with the alcohol and water to go into the "kettle" was fascinating. With further tastings whilst brewing and more history and tales of the Maidstone Distillery was a great 2 hours. At the end to be able to come away with your own personal bottle of gin is a special treat.
    Thanks for a great time and we highly recommend the gins and the experience.

    Had a great time today visiting. Our second visit and well worth it again. Great to see the animals so happy and friendly and to have such a nice experience.

    Just visited here today to take my two year old to see Santa.

    I booked in advance when the tickets came out for the 15.45pm slot.

    Arrived as I am a member I know Kent life pretty well so didn’t stay as long as I usually would as it was freeeezing!

    My son went on the tractor ride but there was a bit of a queue so be prepared! Looked at some of the smaller animals and headed to where Father Christmas was, there was a slight queue but it did go down quickly!

    Santa was good with my son but it is disappointing that he doesn’t give the children their gifts, you go to a “toy shop”, my son got a tractor which he loved but it is a bit rubbish that all the toys are displayed in-front of them to pick! Takes the magic out of it.

    All round was good but not sure I will go back next year! Take wellies its muddy!

    Visited MM today with primary school year 4.
    Ros delivered an informative, fun and interactive workshop that all the children enjoyed. The workshop provided the perfect build up to the main event - seeing a real mummy!
    An excellent day out for all our children who arrived excited and left still buzzing.

    This is such a lovely park! Visited for a couple hours with the children and they loved the park area. The park itself is very well maintained and clean, also has a variety of equipment for different ages. Parking was easy although only option is to pay £2.30 for 6 hours. We didn’t use the cafe as the que was continuously long but it looked to be good. The toilets really let this place down, they are filthy. One toilet roll between three cubicles and almost out of soap. Real shame they aren’t being looked after as the rest of the place is amazing!

    So my birthday venue was Teapot Island this year. I'd been wanting to visit for several years, and this Sunday was the right time. We were here for 11.30, having booked a table in advance. Good plan, as it steadily filled while we waited for brekkie. I really wanted the pancakes. Unfortunately, it was taken off the menu apparently because it was so busy. Shame. There were all manner of people visiting this day. Groups for Dads Day, families, couples older and younger. Small boats, paddle boarders, and kids and ponies enjoying the river. There is a very sizeable recreation paddock over this river where you can park for a flat rate of 4£ at the time of review. This was being used by many groups for fun food and frivolity. The teapot museum was 3£ each to enter and was fabulous! Hubby got board but persevered for me, and I looked at every 8,500 of the awesome teapots! What a very worthwhile place to celebrate and take in something completely out of whack. Awesome! I seriously felt for you all when I saw how far up your property that 2013 flood came to. But you obviously made it beautiful again. Well done, guys.

    This is quite a small NT property accessed via a narrow lane and will always be limited in terms of facilities as a result.
    We had an enjoyable visit because of the enthusiasm and knowledge of all the room guides

    After visiting when I was a school many years ago ,I thought I would visit again.Lots of carriages ,horse harness,sledge and old photos .Staff very chatty and knowledgeable.
    I remember the old Gypsy Carriage that was outside years ago but since gone now.Well worth a visit.It closes at the end of September for the winter. It’s free to get in and well worth a visit .

    Stopped off for lunch before a wedding nearby. Excellent terrace in the sun and the sparkling wine is delicious. There was a pizza van the day we were there and great atmosphere all round.
