Fun things to do...
Ashford Borough Museum
Celebrating Ashford’s railway heritage, the Ashford Borough Museum is in the heart of Ashford’s town centre within a 17th century Grade II listed building. The museum not only covers the history of the railway but also documents the history of the areas as far back in time as the Neolithic and Prehistoric times.

Head to the Ashford Designer Outlet and make the most of all the outlet sales whilst restocking the wardrobe for the new season.

WW1 MK IV Tank
A poignant reminder of the town’s history and sacrifice is found just round the corner from the High Street – a WW1 MK IV Tank.
