This is a great place for anyone to visit, especially if you are interested in the local history. Children love it for the ability to get up close and personal, petting the lambs.I have visited several times and will go again this Summer.

We love Kent life there's always plenty to see and do especially on event days. My girls love cuddle corner and the pottery painting especially. Soft play in the cafe always goes down well at lunch time too

Really good for young children. I thought it was pricey but with all you can do it's a really good day out. Turned out good value for what you get. Look around old houses, animals, cuddle corner, tractor ride, play area and sometimes they have show. Sooty was funny. Owls too. So much to do and interesting history bits

You could easy spend the best part of the day here. There is so much for adults and children alike to do and see. When your legs start to tire there is a short film about hop picking in days gone by to watch. I also loved looking into the old cottages through the different eras and also seeing the... More

Came to see chase and Marshall and was so disappointed - the venue was so poorly organised and hectic, couldn't get food or a drink for my children let alone meet the characters.

Went today primarily to take our 2 year old to see paw patrol, the que was ridiculously long all day long as was the que for cuddle corner. The que for refreshments at the play barn was again a joke.

Thank you for your review which we are naturally disappointed to receive. This was the first time Paw Patrol visited Kent Life and along with the glorious weather this proved to be a popular event.

Been here before however visited today with family. Sad to say that the fun day meet and greet the paw patrol dogs was so badly managed that we never saw them let alone met them.

We visited Kent life on 9/5/17 celebrating my daughters 18th birthday- my family (5 adults and 1 child under 3) had a throughly brilliant day!! The animals were curious and very friendly - staff were very nice - we even got to hold a ferret! A brilliant day out - many thanks to Kent life!
