Mote Park is just a 15 minute walk from Maidstone East/West Station and the Maidstone National Express Coach Stop and under 10 minutes out of the town centre.
If you wish to use the bus, most of Maidstone's buses travel into the Chequers Centre and then connect to the Arriva 85 bus service that stops at the leisure centre - only a 2 min stroll!
