Calling ‘The Garden of England’ home

Known as 'The Garden of England', Kent and the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are a beautiful part of life in Maidstone.  

Also not far from the High Weald, which spreads out below Royal Tunbridge Wells, you have a wealth of picturesque villages, orchards, country houses and local pubs to explore.

Of course, for the excitement and culture of the capital, London is within easy reach for adventurous days out.

Well connected

With the M20 and M2 north of the town, you have good access to routes for coastal destinations such as Folkestone and Dover. And other A roads take you round the county’s other villages and towns. 

For travel by rail, there are two train stations – Maidstone East and Maidstone West – with the average journey time from Maidstone East into London Victoria taking around an hour. 

And when you want to travel abroad, Heathrow Airport is just over a two hour drive away.

A wealth of amenities

The historic town centre has a wealth of independent shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. And along with large shopping centres, there’s even a weekly market, plus a variety of entertainment for all ages.  

As well as Whatman Park, you have Mote Park – the largest in the town – which features 450 acres of beautiful green space, including a lake that’s perfect to walk around on the weekend.  

For education, there’s 15 secondary schools to choose from and a wide range of primary schools – making Maidstone a great place for growing families.
