Information about parking in Maidstone

Maidstone is a town in Kent 32 miles southeast of London. It is the county town of Kent. Wove paper was invented here in 1740, and the town and its environs have a history in agriculture (this is, after all, the Garden of England) as well as quarrying, brewing and cloth making. Today, though, it is largely a service, retail and commuter town.

  • Nearby attractions

    Leeds Castle is usually described by some as the world’s loveliest castle. As well as the castle there’s a maze, an underground grotto, and parkland.


    Mote Park is attractive for its lakes and woodlands but also has pitch and putt and water sports. And, if you’re quiet and very still, you just might see a kingfisher.


    Cobtree Manor Park is a good place to walk and has a picnic area and a café as well as a children’s playground.


    Maidstone Museum runs the gamut of historical artefacts from an Egyptian mummy to a Victorian corset for a woman Victorians would have described as “in an interesting condition” – that is, expecting a child.
