Locomotive enthusiasts will enjoy the Summer Steam Festival taking place in Tunbridge Wells while not far away in Rye, the town's Ukulele Festival shows there really is something for everyone.

The magnificent setting of Hampton Court Palace is a sumptuous backdrop for the world’s largest annual flower show from July 5th to 10th. Another prestigious event is the Henley Festival with a host of stars expected in attendance.

The Kent County Show promises a weekend showcasing agricultural life with fun demonstrations and plenty of stalls from the 8th to the 10th or on the same weekend, take to the skies at the Kite Festival in Brighton.

An exhibition and special events throughout the summer at Mottisfont celebrate 150 years of Beatrix Potter while the much anticipated Zany Zebras from Marwell hit the streets of Southampton for ten weeks.

The summer holidays start towards the end of July and kids can get free entry to Oxford Castle and there's more to discover for the whole family at the Winchester Science Festival.
