Travelling around Maidstone
Maidstone’s historic nooks and a thriving centre make this town what it is. Think pretty cobbled streets next to modern apartment complexes and convenience shops and you get an idea of what to expect. Located in the “Garden of England”, visitors can expect lots of leafy parkland in this pretty old town in the heart of Kent.
If you’re thinking of visiting Maidstone, then there’s plenty for you, whether you’re a history buff, lover of waterways or simply in the mood for a spot of shopping. With cinemas, parkland, the magical Leeds Castle and the fascinating Maidstone museum, you’ll never be short of things to see and do.
Sandwiched between Sevenoaks and Ashford, Maidstone is a short train ride from London and the channel, and so has great transport links. There are a ton of bus routes to get you where you need to go, whether it’s a short hop from the town centre to the hospital or a bus to the nearby Medway Towns. Whatever the reason for your visit, Arriva can help you to get around.
