Medway Heritage Summer Trails

Take part in our FREE family trails at heritage sites across Medway this summer for your chance to win a family bundle of days-out tickets.

Exciting new trails are being launched at Rochester Castle, Upnor Castle, Rochester Guildhall Museum, Eastgate House and Temple Manor to bring history to life for young visitors thirsty for knowledge and adventure this summer. 

Each trail and badge is themed around the history of the attraction:

  • Rochester Castle – A Knight’s Trail (defend Rochester Castle)
  • Upnor Castle – Defend Upnor Castle Trail
  • Eastgate House – Race into Space
  • The Guildhall Museum – '50s Trail
  • Temple Manor – The Summer Task Trail

Your challenge is to complete your special stamp booklet and earn the full set of badges by visiting each site and completing the five trails.

How it works 

On your first visit you will receive your free booklet and a lanyard. You will earn a unique, specially-designed button badge at each attraction when you have completed the trail.  

Once you've completed all of the trails, you can unlock an extra-special sea plane badge, PLUS you will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win a bundle of family tickets for loads of attractions across Medway.

The trails have now launched so start your trail quest today! You have until 11 September to complete them all

All entries for the family bundle of tickets must be made by 25 September 2022. You can do this at any of the five attractions. The winner will be announced in early October 2022.
