From our hotels - Days Inn Maidstone and Days Inn Sevenoaks – you can enjoy some of the very best activities and attractions in the region. Let us talk you through the greatest things to do in Kent this summer…


Leeds Castle

Described as the ‘loveliest castle in the world’, Leeds Castle near Maidstone is the perfect day out, come rain or shine. Here you can explore hundreds of years of history, including its heritage as a Norman stronghold, the private property of multiple English medieval queens, and a palace regularly used by Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon.

As well as wandering through its castle and extensive grounds, you can enjoy a spot of adventure golf, play on its many playgrounds, master its maze and grotto, visit its resident birds of prey, and explore its famous Dog Collar Museum.

For thrill seeking visitors, Leeds Castle’s Go Ape high ropes adventure course is a must-visit.


Knole Park

If you’re looking for something a little more rustic, Knole Park in Sevenoaks is the place to while away the day. It’s a protected conservation area and a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), not to mention a stunning place to explore on foot.


Kent Owl Academy

The Kent Owl Academy in Maidstone is a fabulous experience that really captivates visitors of all ages.  You can find out so much more about many birds of prey, and even get involved. Their experience days are second to none, providing fun and lots of unforgettable memories for all the family.


The Mount Vineyard

Take advantage of the fantastic summer weather by visiting The Mount Vineyard in Sevenoaks’ Darent Valley. It’s a hidden gem that’s the perfect experience for wine loving solo travellers, couples and friends.

You can sample some great local produce in the most beautiful surroundings, taste a delectable selection of English wines, and explore the wine making process first hand.
