Maidstone is the county town in Kent, positioned by the River Medway and it hosts the offices of the county council. The river served as a trading route for agriculture in times gone by. The history of the settlement itself stretches as far back as the Stone Age. Residents these days tend to be employed in services, retail outlets or in administration. Maidstone also acts as a commuting hub for the city of London. Leisure pursuits abound in the town with a good mix of local sports clubs and hobby groups. Clare Park in particular is an epicentre for much of this energetic activity. Maidstone is also a popular location for tourists visiting Kent. Residents are friendly, hospitable and extremely dedicated to supporting their local community.
Maidstone is located within a beautiful environment very close to where the River Medway links up to the Beult and Teise at Yalding and the river itself gently runs through the town centre. The town of Maidstone has developed over time in front of two hills with Penenden Heath also within sight – it makes for a majestic setting. Maidstone itself sees the conjoining of two waterways – the Medway with the River Len. It’s a fairly short river but the current is powerful, in fact it generated more than 30 mills in yesteryear. There are some absorbing ponds on the river water, which feature on the landscape and look simply tranquil. Maidstone also incorporates smaller settlements nearby – Allington, Bearsted, Tovil, Barming, Sandling, Weavering Street and Penenden Heath. Housing estates nearby are namely Shepway, Grove Green, Roseacre, Ringlestone, Harbourland and Vintners Park.
Maidstone boasts a wonderful selection of cultural treats with a range of theatres including RiverStage; the Hermitage Millennium Amphitheatre; Hazlitt Theatre and The Exchange Studio. There is a Maidstone Museum and Bentlif Art Gallery too, the main part in Chillingon Manor, with exhibits ranging from Egyptian artefacts to decorative art. The town is also mentioned in literary works such as Moonraker by Ian Fleming. The James Bond novel sees protagonist Hugo Drax visiting the town via King Hill and staying for the night at the Thomas Wyatt Hotel. Author Jack London also gives a nod to Maidstone in The People of the Abyss, which sees him try hop picking in the town and staying with a local resident.
Visitors are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to the many ‘things to do’ in Maidstone. The town has a happy vibe and proper buzz about it, which provides for a very pleasant environment indeed. Shopping facilities are widespread and easy to access at the Maidstone Market, as well as the retail outlets found in Fremlin Walk. Maidstone also boasts a great selection of locally produced food and drink for sale in the town as well. Parking places are easy to find, which is always a real bonus! If shopping until you drop doesn’t appeal, you could head to the ‘great outdoors’ surrounding Maidstone. Walking trails abound and cyclists will be spoilt for choice. The natural surroundings are wonderful. Families can enjoy days out in places such as Kent Life Heritage Farm, Teapot Island and Headcorn Aerodrome.
