It’s the bank holiday this weekend. Are you stuck for things to do?
May we suggest…
A walk through the bluebells at Emmetts Gardens
This is the time of the year to go to Emmetts Gardens. Fabulous woodlands with a carpet of bluebells. See our previous blog post. Free entry to National Trust members, otherwise adults are £8.30 each, children £4.15 and a family ticket £20.75. Open 10am – 5pm
Watching or participating in the Shoreham Duck Race
This looks like the most crazy fun. £1 to enter your duck (prizes for the best duck and the winning duck) into the race which starts at 2.30pm on Monday 4th May
Getting enthused by the Yamato drummers of Japan at the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury
Tickets are still available for these amazing sense awakening drummers for Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th May
Joining in the May Day festival at Hever Castle
Maypole dancing is on the agenda. Watch the professionals then have a go yourself. Traditional English bank holiday activity. See our previous blog post for more about Hever Castle. Entry to the house and gardens is £16 for adults, £9 for children or a family ticket is £42.50. Open 10.30am – 6pm (last entry 4.30pm).
Eating fish and chips at Whitstable
Whitstable is probably our favourite coastal haunt, with the combination of independent shops on Harbour Street, sea air and gorgeous restaurants and coffee shops. Wander round the town and enjoy fish and chips outside. For a more special meal, head along the coast to the Michelin starred Sportsman at Seasalter (need to book!)
