NEW! Meet the Owls!

Learn about their adaptations, habitat and diet as well as getting to see them fly in a purpose built arena. A really magical experience which is both educational and entertaining.

The session lasts approx. 30-40 minutes and takes place outside. Maximum 30 people per session.

Hopper's Delight

Begin your day with a tour and tasting at the Shepherd Neame Brewery Faversham followed by a delicious lunch of ‘Shepherd Neame Pie’. You will then depart Shepherd Neame and make your way to Kent Life, where you will join us for a tractor tour of the site, discovering the historic houses and meeting the farm animals. Visit our Oast house and our Hop Garden, planted with Fuggle and Goldings Hops, where you will learn about hop picking. Depending on the time of year, you may be able to have a go yourself as we select bines and pick hops ready for the brewing process. Once the hops are picked, you will be rewarded by the Tally Man who will escort to Dotty’s Tea Rooms for a tasty cream tea. (Own travel arrangements are required)

Prices
£31.50 per person (over 18’s only)

Why not come along and explore our gardens, guided by one of our Kent Life gardeners. You will be led on a tour through our Kitchen and Herb gardens – with a question and answer session afterwards. If time allows, why not get hands on and help us with our pruning!

Rag Rug Making

A craft of the past that has made a modern-day comeback! In days gone by, ordinary people used the materials they had available to make their homes comfortable and pretty. They used strips of old material to make warm rugs to cover draughty floors or even beds. Today, using vintage tools, we use this technique to create a beautiful rag rug piece that could be turned into a scatter cushion or wall hanging. All materials will be provided, no previous experience needed.

The workshop takes about 1.5 hours.
