Things to see and do in Maidstone


As Kent’s county town, the Maidstone Museum and nearby Kent Life open-air museum are great local attractions. The same goes for Leeds Castle not far from town, with its moat and maze, as well as Allington Castle and Cobtree Manor Park. Mote Park meanwhile, is a 440-acre treat which pushes up to the eastern part of the town centre, complete with an impressive stately home, boating lake and miniature railway. 


When you want to enjoy longer walks in the countryside, the Kent Downs are close at hand, with Blue Bell Hill, Detling Hill and White Horse Wood on Maidstone’s doorstep. The High Weald AONB, meanwhile, is just to the south of town, which also offers excellent access to swathes of beautiful South East coastline. 


Education


Maidstone is a great place to live if you have children. There’s a super choice of primary and secondary schools, including Allington Primary, St Michael’s CofE Infant School, St John’s CofE Primary and Jubilee Primary. All of these schools are rated as outstanding by Ofsted. 


There are two local girls’ grammar schools which are also in the education board’s top category; Invicta Grammar School and Maidstone Grammar School for Girls. The town’s two boys’ grammars - Oakwood Park Grammar and Maidstone Grammar - are classed as good, along with mixed options Valley Park School, St Simon Stock Catholic School and St Augustine Academy. 


Maidstone transport links


The town is served by three train stations - Maidstone East, Maidstone West and Maidstone Barracks - which all offer a good selection of Southeastern services. Trains to London take around an hour, making the town viable for commuting to the capital. Commuter links are enhanced by the M20 motorway which passes just to the north of town, giving you quick and easy access to the M25 circular and to Ashford and Folkestone to the south east. 


The Maidstone property scene


With a wide selection of local property to suit a range of budgets, house prices in Maidstone are significantly higher than the national average. This indicates the desirability of this area, although the town is more affordable than many other places in the South East. 


Whether you’re set on Maidstone or you’re also interested in spectacular new build homes in Faversham and contemporary 3 and 4 bedroom homes in Ashford, Kent is a great part of the country to invest your money in.
