Where is the Maidstone Studio?

Something you may not know about our location is that it is a returning studio! Our purpose built studio is located on a buzzing high street, with lots of coffee shops and pubs nearby so that you can make a full day out of your studio visit. Built next to Brenchley Gardens, families can enjoy a lovely time at the park either before or after your visit. You can find parking located at the studio to make transporting family members and bags super easy. If you’re not driving to the studio, that’s fine! You can find our studio next to the Maidstone East Station and Wetherspoons pub (if you’re looking for some pub grub!). If you’re still looking for activities to fill in your day, our studio is super close to the popular Fremlin Walk and river Medway which is only 5 minutes away. 

We can’t wait to welcome you into our studio! All customers are greeted with free tea and coffee, and we even pop open the popcorn for our viewings! Toilets and changing rooms can be found inside the studio and we’re here to help you every step of the way!
