LOCATED 15 MINUTES WEST OF MARGATE, ESCAPE THE STRESSES OF EVERYDAY LIFE AND BE ENCHANTED BY THIS 'MUST VISIT' DESTINATION. Established by John Powell-Powell, Quex Park is a historic country estate but like many traditional estates, it has diversified its many redundant and outdated agricultural buildings but has retained its beautiful Victorian splendour. The Park is now the proud home to many visitor attractions, leisure activities, bespoke retail and food & drink outlets as well as offering a packed and exciting annual events calendar with something for the whole family to enjoy. Quex Park is best known for the awardwinning Powell-Cotton Museum, Quex House and Gardens, which offers an exciting, fun and interactive day out. You will find amazing collections, natural history galleries, a vast array of art and archaeology, one of the most impressive dioramas in Europe as well as being able to get hands on in The Cube, where you can handle over 400 objects. Relax with a stroll around the beautiful gardens of Quex House, the Secret Garden Centre or Quex Craft Village before enjoying a scrumptious afternoon tea at Mamma Feelgoods café. Then stock up with the finest locally produced food and drink from Quex Barn. Entertain the children at Jungle Jims indoor & outdoor playcentre. Challenge your family and friends to a game of paintballing or adventure golf – who’s going to be the winner? This attraction is an all-weather, all family, allencompassing day out, with a unique community of local leisure businesses brought together on a country estate where you can make everlasting memories each time you visit. Entry onto the park is free and each attraction has its own opening times and admission fees where applicable. More information can be found on the website, plan your next adventure at 76
