Charing

A fascinating village which could tell a tale or two…


Charing is a small historic and picturesque village close to Ashford and within easy reach of Maidstone, Canterbury, Faversham and Whitstable.

On the main village high street you will find a selection of pretty cottages and the remains of an 11th century palace which was once used by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Charing was once a stopover place as part of the major pilgrim trail to the shrine of Thomas a Becket at Canterbury. A great example of a place to rest was the Bishop’s Palace which was once used by the various Archbishops of Canterbury as their overnight accommodation on pilgrimages between London and Canterbury. This palace is located behind the 13th century parish church of St Peter and St Paul.

Not only is Charing packed with historical buildings, there is also a range of shops and amenities on offer including a butchers, a general store, a gastro pub and delightful tea rooms.

Residents of Charing can also benefit from the primary school, doctors surgery and railway station which are within easy reach.

There is a strong community spirit in the village of Charing and residents there are very proud of their award winning village green which in recent years has won the South East in Bloom competition.
