Places in Kent to visit when it’s raining!

Falling Rain

With all the rain we’ve had recently, I’ve been thinking about the best places I’ve visited in Kent to avoid getting wet.

I’ve compiled my top picks here, but I’d love to hear your suggestions too! 

Comment below, or even better, add your suggestion to the Things to Do section of Mumsnet Local Kent.

In no particular order…

Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery

The Beaney: House of Art and Knowledge

The Beaney is an art museum and library situated in the heart of the historic city of Canterbury. The activity trays situation around the museum have entertained both the adults and children  I've taken here!

Gulbenkian Theatre

It is well worth checking the Gulbenkian's calendar of events. We thoroughly enjoyed every show we've been to at this child friendly theatre.

Brave the rain at Wingham Wildlife Park and if it gets too much, head into the Lion's Den. It contains over 3,300 square feet of soft play fun, over 3 levels!
