The Local Area Guide to Living in Allington, Kent

Allington is a modern village located along the sides of the A20, just west of Maidstone, in Kent.

This quaint area is well-known for its historical castle, tucked away near the River Medway. The present stone castle, which has had a number of refurbishments over the years, was converted into a mansion that belonged to the Wyatt family.

Today, the Castle is owned by Sir Robert Worcester as a private residence not open to the public. The area also has a number of historical churches dating back to the medieval days, open to tourists and local residents. Allington is a beautiful location for those looking to live in a spacious area with a fair amount of greenery. With access to the river, locals and visitors can enjoy the views on an afternoon boat ride.
