Featuring the marvellous Monty
My name is Monty and I live at Quex Park in Birchington, Kent with my other alpaca buddies. I am a firm favourite with some of our walkers and they request me for their treks each time they visit. I have just had my 5th birthday! Together we can turn your visit to Birchington into an unforgettable experience, showing you areas of Quex Park that are not normally open to the public. You can take photographs of us and feed us some treats. Carrot treats make us very happy!
The Watering Hole Cafe
Why not follow your trek with a delicious afternoon / cream tea at the Watering Hole Cafe, sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream, cake selection and freshly brewed tea or coffee. You can even upgrade to prosecco!
Please place an order ahead of your trekking experience as notice is required.
