History Walk - Heart of Kent Walking Festival


Starting in the town centre Maidstone’s history will be apparent as you pass in the ancient buildings on route to the river. Continuing along the river path, your knowledgeable walk leader will point out many key historic sites on route to Allington. From Allington you will leave the riverside as you head towards Fant before re-joining the Medway river path back to the town centre where you will see the medieval quarter where the Archbishops’ Palace , All Saints Church and the College of All Saints sit perched by the River.
