The Archbishop's Palace was Maidstone's medieval archbishop's house. The Palace was designed mostly in the late 14th century. The Infirmarer's Garden, recreated in the walled garden in 1994, includes a tunnel arbour and herb beds that would have used in medieval times. This place is beautiful, Maidstone is lucky to have such a stunning location for the registry office, and the staff are lovely and accommodating.
