Medway Towpath walking & cycling route

The Medway Towpath provides a long and peaceful stretch of riverside pathway, which is ideal for walking and cycling. The towpath can be cycled between Aylesford and Barming Bridge, with the path running through the centre of Maidstone, so you can start your route from the town and head in either direction along the river. If you work in Maidstone town centre, you can even head to the towpath for some relaxation during your lunch break.

There’s more information about the Medway Towpath, including maps of the route, available through our friends at Explore Kent, so click on the link below to take a look, and check out the videos below for some inspiration.
