10 Best Things To Do For Free
Maidstone offers some great things to do and see but almost everyone has limits on their budget. Don't let that stop you visiting because we have some great things to do and see for free or very low costs.
Mote Park - offers a great place for exploration, with its childrens playground, lake side walks, BMX track, guided walks and tours and is ideal for a picnic.
Maidstone Museum and Bentlif Art Gallery - is perfect as it has lots of interesting artefacts and information inside which inspires and educates at the same time.
Historic Maidstone Walking Tour - This is an excellent way to find out more about this very old County Town with its mad priests, witches and local industry.
Teston Park, Whatman Park and Maidstone Millennium River Park all offer delightful waterside walking and picnicing areas. With an abundance of wildlife on the River Medway this can be a quiet but very entertaining.
Headcorn Aerodrome - Offers free admission to all. You can watch the light aircraft come and go, people parachuting out and frequently the Tiger Club practicing their air displays.
Lashenden Air Warfare Museum - Discover the history of Headcorn Aerodrome and a great deal about the aircraft which have flown in battle into and out of this airfield. (Donations are gratefully received).
White Horse Wood Country Park can be found about Detling Village on the top of the North Downs. This is an excellent place or a picnic or to enjoy the freedom of flying a kite and explore Thurnham Castle ruins.
Heritage Open Days - September 2014 where a good number of properties in the Maidstone area, some of which are rarely sene, open their doors to the public for free. This is an interesting time to visit.
