Welcome to Ashford sign

Dynamic Ashford is alive with aspirations - and is achieving them too.  International rail links ensure a cosmopolitan vibe; a well-preserved past adds intriguing appeal.

Ashford is just 38 minutes from London by train. Bag big-brand bargains at the Ashford Designer Outlet and browse top-name high street stores at County Square shopping Centre.  And with the newly-opened Travelodge and stunning Ashford Picturehouse situated next to each other right in the centre of town you don't have far to go for a night out and a place to lay your head!

Superb eateries abound; Ashford Bowling offers the ultimate 10-pin experience whilst Eureka Entertainment adds a high-tech multiple. Local accommodation notches up the accolades - there's everything from a facility-packed, five-star caravan park, to a luxury four-star hotel with its own super-swish spa.

And amid all these bursts of the new, Ashford proudly preserves a still-vibrant past.  In Middle Row medieval, Georgian and Jacobean buildings flank narrow alleys; weather-boarded cottages frame a historic church.  

Our Heritage Trail will ensure that you don't miss the hidden gems, pop in to the Ashford or Tenterden Visitor information for your copy.
