Surprisingly wide selection of carriages for what looks like (from the outside) a small museum. Have been living close to Maidstone for a decade now and every time we drove past said that we should visit - finally made it today. There are around 60...More

My kind of place but not suitable for youg kiddies. Actually I'm a classic car fan but a museum of horse drawn carriages and the way coachwork was built is equally interesting. Well worth the visit I loved the cabriolets and the All Sain't church...More
