Kent Life, near Maidstone in Kent, is rolling back the years this summer to recreate a 1950s holiday camp.

From now until September 3, the attraction is adding a range of activities, transporting visitors back to an age when holiday camps were the highlight of every British summer. Staff will be getting into the retro spirit by wearing special holiday camp uniforms and encouraging guests to join in a range of activities - from tug-of-war competitions to sports day races. The attraction also offers an outdoor adventure play area, a farm, soft indoor play barn, donkey rides, pottery studio, junior electric quad bikes, tractor rides, dressing up and stilt-walking. Other highlights include a Vintage Village, which features a range of period dressed historic buildings; gardens, an orchard and a wildlife discovery trail. The attraction is open daily from 10:00 to 17:00 on weekdays and 10:00 to 18:00 on weekends and during school holidays until November. The usual admission is £8.95 for adults and £6.50 for children. Children aged three and under go free. A minimum group of 15 is required for pre-bookings.
