We're off to Kent (Sandwich area, with car so can spread out) for a couple of days with a 10yo and 8yo. We'll be fitting in some beach walks to blow away some cobwebs, but heavy rain is forecast, so we're looking for ideas (preferably local attractions like kid-friendly museums, rather than the obvious things we could do anywhere, like cinema). Any thoughts?
Come to Thanet Google Carlton cinema in westgate very cheap. Broadstairs is lovely. Revolution skate park in St. Peter's is good if you have boys. Fowlmead in between is good for riding bikes. Turner etc in margate.
Canterbury Tales is pretty good for an hour for primary aged children and Canterbury museum is bargainaiseous and child-friendly with hands-on activities, but not large, you can then make it a triple with the rupert bear/bagpuss mueum (also cheap and my favourite).
Visit Quex! Museum full of amazing taxidermy and pretty gardens, Quex Barn for a great meal and excellent local produce, Jungle Jims softplay is there too if it's pouring and you're desperate - all spread out around the site.
Wingham Wildlife Park is really good too (although not much fun in the rain). Dover Castle is brilliant. Turner Contemporary in Margate is lovely and Margate itself is actually much improved for a wander around
