Other guests including the Mayor of Dover, Cllr Gordon Cowan and Town-Sergeant Mr David Hunt-Cooke; The Mayor of Swale, Cllr Paul Stephen and the Chair of the River Parish Council Clive Taylor and his wife Jill, participated in the 2022 launch. The guests were able to meet with representatives of many of the 53 Museums and Heritage sites that are now part of the scheme at stalls they had set up over two floors of the Crabble Corn Mill site; who are one of the participating sites.

Visitor badges are FREE. Normal entry fees apply to each museum or heritage site. Medway Queen is open on Saturdays from 11am to 4pm (last admissions 3pm) Opening dates and times and entry costs for all sites can be found on the website: https://wheelsoftime.uk/
Wheels of Time is a partnership of the participating museums and heritage sites developed to encourage children and their families to explore heritage sites in Kent. Comments from parents include “We have all learnt so much and explored places we didn't know existed”.
The scheme receives valuable support from Kent Children’s University (KCU) through many of the sites being accredited as Learning Destinations and inclusion of visit a Wheels of Time site as an activity for KCU challenges. Children registered with Children’s University can collect 0.5 to 1 Learning Credit at any Wheels of Time site and more at those that are validated Learning Destinations.
