Kent Life offers visitors a range of activities including a taste of what life was like in Kent in the past with its Vintage Village, a recreation of a home during World War II. In the play and farmyard area, children can explore an outdoor play area, or they can bottle feed lambs at Easter, use the play beach and bouncy castle in Summer, ride on a donkey, and enjoy the indoor soft play area with 3 floors to explore. They can also explore animals and play, paint-a-pot studio or get close to smaller farmyard animals in the cuddle corner and the Owl Academy.
