The River Medway runs through the centre of the town, linking it with Rochester and the Thames Estuary. Historically, the river carried much of the town's trade as the centre of the agricultural county of Kent, known as the Garden of England. There is evidence of settlement in the area dating back before the Stone Age. Since World War II, the town's economy has shifted from heavy industry towards light industry and services.
Maidstone has a population of over 113,100 people.
