What people are saying about Kent

Had an amazing place day out. There's so much to do - the maze is a must-visit especially with kids, Bird show not as much. Castle itself is beautiful and the surrounding grounds are amazing for a sunny-day picnic! Pity there aren't any black swans anymore. Lots of options to eat and plenty of toilets around the area. Will definitely come next time and try the toy train too! :)
