Maidstone’s Heart of Kent Walking Festival is back again this year and booking is now open. Taking place between Friday 15 to Sunday 24 March. The festival is run by a collaboration of organisations, led by Visit Maidstone from Maidstone Borough Council (MBC).

Walk lengths and grades vary to suit different abilities, allowing both experienced and new walkers to take part. All walks are run by expert guides with amazing knowledge, many sharing information on different topics such as history, flora and fauna, geology and much more.

There are currently 15 walks taking place during the festival.

Cllr Claudine Russell, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Arts at MBC said:

It is great be able to bring the festival back this year. Booking is essential for all the guided walks, so get in quick to make sure you get your preferred walk. Some walks are free of charge, and others have a fee to take part.

There are even more walks to choose from this year, so choose the right walk for you, the walk grades and accessibility descriptions are online. They are already booking up fast, so anyone interested should take a look at the Visit Maidstone website and book your preferred walk.

The walks are filling up fast, so booking is essential to avoid disappointment.
