We used to bring our children here years ago, now its our grandchildren.
For small children there is a pleasant riverside walk where they can throw sticks in the river and watch them float downstream, or mess around with simple fishing nets. For older children and walkers there are a range of way-marked paths that take you through the woods and countryside of the Darenth Valley.
The cafe and gift shop is ideal for the location and provides what's needed without over commercialising the site. I did enjoy looking at the work of local artists on display at the visitor centre but that is no longer open.
Remember to bring £1.50 in change for the car park, a reasonable contribution toward the upkeep of this valuable resource.
Just as well the M25 didn't go through the Darenth Valley, what a shame that would of been.
