About

The Museum of Kent Life is the perfect Kentish venue for a wedding, civil partnership or a baby welcoming. Among the 30 acres of grounds are restored period buildings and beautiful tended gardens for your unforgettable day.

We are licensed for up to 90 guests for a Civil marriage. The Wagon Store - complete with beams and Kentish hops - can seat for the Wedding Breakfast with professional catering provided by Bonner's the Caterers. An additional 90 guests can join for the evening party.

Our dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator is on hand to guide you through your plans. Only one wedding a day guarantees our undivided attention.
