Everyone loves something special for their birthday, whether you're turning ten or 100. If you're lucky enough to do so during the summer months, all the better! For kids, it means no school. For adults, it's an opportunity to take a day off and enjoy the warm weather.
So why not make a proper event out of your birthday this year? Celebrations are always more fun with more people, so invite your friends and family along for your party at one of the venues below. They all make for a fantastic time. Don't worry about transportation - leave that one to us here at Kings Ferry. We'll make sure you get there and back with plenty of time to spare.
Before you write this one off as being only for the kids, recall the thrill of putting those precious building blocks together for the first time. Remember the enjoyment of putting something together that has come purely from your imagination. Yes, kids will adore seeing what can be done with time, talent and lots of Lego, but so will the adults. Plus, there are some pretty heart-stopping roller coasters to experience. Speaking of which…
Sit back and feel your heart stop as your soar into the stratosphere aboard Stealth, the fastest accelerating coaster in the UK. Thorpe Park is a fantastic place to enjoy a birthday party - not only do you get to enjoy the rides, but the attraction has put together a very special selection of birthday treats. These include a birthday cake, party food in Bar 360, unlimited soft drinks and party bags for everyone invited. To cap it all, you'll be treated like a VIP throughout your day.
Port Lympne Zoo
Port Lympne Zoo is an incredible menagerie containing every kind of animal you could possibly think of, and perhaps a few more as well. Parties are catered depending on the age of the birthday boy or girl, and offer a variety of bonuses that normal guests simply won't get to experience. The kids will have the time of their lives on a VIP safari trip as part of the African Experience, where they'll see everything from hyenas to tigers. After this, it's time to hit the party food in the Club House, where you'll dine like the king of all beasts on a sumptuous finger buffet.
Forget the Shard - the best views of London can be found at the top of the Millbank Tower. Survey breathtaking views across the splendid capital, taking in the sights and chatting with a glass of Champagne in one hand and a canape in the other. Sophistication and style are the buzzwords here - you'll enjoy mouthwatering dishes and fantastic wines to get tipsy on before they clear the tables in the bar for a spot of dancing.
