About Maidstone

Maidstone is the county town of Kent. The River Medway runs through the centre of the town, linking it with Rochester and the Thames Estuary. Historically, the river was  a source and route for much of the town’s trade as the centre of the agricultural county of Kent, known as the Garden of England. There is evidence of a settlement in the area dating back to before the Stone Age. Maidstone is one of the premier shopping areas in Kent and has many large shops as well as some small boutique shops. The Library and History centre is the central library for Kent. There are parks and open spaces within walking distance of the town and a riverside walking and cycling route.

Maidstone Barracks is around a ten minute walk from Maidstone East Station, County Hall and the shops and restaurants on the north of the town.
