Opening of Wheels of Time sites

Some sites have announced their re-opening plans. We list below all 48 sites colour coded to indicate whether they have announced plans to open.

We will keep this post updated as sites inform us of their plans.

Sites that have opened are indicated in green. Click the site name to visit their website for times and booking details.

Sites that have announced plans to open are indicated in orange with the planned opening date. Opening dates may change.

See which sites are open on the online version of Roamin’ Rex’s map.

Please check directly the websites and, where they have them, social media accounts of museums and heritage sites before leaving home. Some sites will require visitors to pre-book. We will not be able to maintain details of opening times on the Wheels of Time website.

E-badge scheme launches

WoT E-badge logo

In January we promised an exciting new way for you to earn virtual rewards for learning about Kent’s heritage.

Today, we launch the chance to explore Kent’s heritage, when you are unable to visit our sites. Earn digital E-badges badges by visiting some of their websites and completing activities provided.

Unlike the Wheels of Time (physical) Scheme you don’t have to be between 5 and 11 years of age to participate in the E-badge Scheme; it is is open to all.

To get started:

  • visit wheelsoftime.uk/e-badge-scheme/
  • register to participate
  • visit a website linked to one of the e-badges in our gallery
  • complete the marked Wheels of Time activity to collect a code
  • enter the code on your My E-badges page on the Wheels of Time website
