The amusement park is re-landscaped to provide a space that brings together lovingly restored vintage rides set against a backdrop of art installations (including an interactive marble run and a mirrored spinning top), adventurous street food, unique bars and an eclectic programme of live events. A new garden boardwalk also gives everyone the opportunity to admire the antique menagerie cages from the 1800s, capturing part of the site’s unique history.

Minster Abbey is at the heart of the village of Minster. It was at Ebbsfleet, a few miles from Minster that St. Augustine, sent by Pope Gregory the Great, landed in 597 to begin his mission to the Anglo-Saxon people. Within a few years of his arrival on the shores of Thanet, Christianity had spread throughout southern England, and monastic life began to flourish. Minster Abbey was one of the earliest monastic foundations.
The folly was probably built by Lord Holland at the same time as The Captain Digby and Kingsgate Castle. It is built in the shape of a typical Henrican castle but much smaller scale.
