South West England Tourist Attractions

Posted on


I am just back from a lovely week's holiday in Canterbury visiting relatives.  We had lovely weather, really hot and sunny, although it did pour down on one day but mostly it was sunny, dry and warm.

We did quite a lot in the week but I am going to tell you about Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Lythe, Kent. 

It is the first time I have been there and it is fantastic.  We went on the safari first.  We had to queue for a little while to get on one of the trucks to take us around the safari park to see the wild animals.  This is a photo taken from the truck we were in.


This is another photo of the wild animals on the safari tour.



After the safari we went into the Dinosaur Forest to see the dinosaur statues.


I did not realise that there were so many dinosaurs that had lived in prehistoric times.

I took quite a few photos of the dinosaurs and this is one of them.


I have forgotten this one's name.  There are boards in front of each dinosaur with its name and a bit about them.

There are restaurants, shops, play areas for children and also a hotel in the park.  It is well worth a visit and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We also visited Whitstable which is a favourite of ours.  We went to the Castle first where there is a lovely play park and we had cake and coffee in the cafe there.  We then had a walk along the harbour and had lunch at one of the restaurants.  It was sunny and a lovely day when we went into the restaurant but when we came out it started raining.  We were a bit wet when we got back to our car but we soon dried off and then it stopped raining and the sun came out again.
