West Malling station in Kent opened as Malling in 1874, and West was added in 1913 after a second station opened to the east. It's an attractive sight, with a two-storey red brick building and an elaborate gabled roof. Today, the station is known as West Malling for Kings Hill, as it caters for the large residential development taking place on the former RAF airfield. Trains from West Malling connect to London Victoria and Canterbury West. Boasting copious restaurants, pubs, cafes and tearooms - as well as a community of Benedictine nuns - West Malling is a vibrant modern town with much of its history still visible. Look out for the Tudor-built Abbey Gatehouse; the Cascade, a Georgian man-made waterfall; and West Malling parish church, a-Grade II listed building dedicated to Saint Mary the Virgin. For those who fancy a trek, Manor Park Country Park is a short walk from the town centre, while Leybourne Lakes Country Park offers windsurfing, sailing and canoeing.
