Holiday Ideas and Events 2018-2019

We know that sometimes you just need to get out and about, so here are some ideas and events happening locally.

Christmas events locally:

  • Local Authority’s youth hub and children’s centre programme. There are lots of events being run over the summer holidays to keep families entertained.   Youth Offer Maidstone
  • Hever Castle: Walk around the lake and watch the leaves turning for Autumn or visit the castle and find out about this historic building. Enjoy Snowdrop Walk Hever Castle


  • Around 70,000 snowdrop bulbs have been planted in the Gardens over the past few years
  • Take a peaceful one hour Hever Lake Walk which takes the visitor around the perimeter of the 38 acre lake
  • The Winter Garden opposite Half Moon Lawn has been rejuvenated in recent years with specialist snowdrop bulbs planted among the winter flowering shrubs

*We recommend that you wear suitable footwear such as Wellington boots or walking boots as the ground may be boggy in places.
