Explore ‘The Garden of England’ with a visit to this former hop kiln in Kent. YHA Medway has fab access to historic attractions and glorious countryside, making it perfect for school trips and activity groups alike. This atmospheric hostel has an on-site meeting room, a comfy lounge and two dining rooms – plenty of space for your group to spread out and socialise. There’s a fully licensed bar too.
Sit down to tasty group catering after your day in Kent, with our options for breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. Our unique building makes a great base for schools, tourists and outdoor lovers, offering a TV, board games and the beautiful Capstone Farm Country Park literally across the road.
If you’re a history buff, YHA Medway has plenty to keep you happy. Spend the day exploring the Royal Dockyard Museum at Chatham, the historic city of Rochester, or Dickens World (a must-visit for schools). To break up your cultural break, adrenaline junkies can head to Chatham Ski Centre for a go at skiing or get on their bikes at Capstone or the nearby North Downs Way bridleways. These are both next door to the hostel.
