Maidstone bus services

Whether it's for shopping or culture, explore Maidstone by bus

For tourists or locals, Maidstone offers loads of fun things to do. Here's a plethora of high street shops, independents and restaurants, without London's mobs. For some culture, book tickets at The Hazlitt Theatre, which has a calendar of events ranging from ballet to comedy, or venture to Mote Park with its 440-acre landscaped park land, miniature railway and boating lake.

We offer over 20 bus routes in and around Maidstone, whether it’s a short hop from the town centre to the hospital or a bus to the nearby Medway Towns.
