Ashford in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... the centre a little safer, it is definitely confusing for any visitors and any safety benefits were hilariously outweighed by the council's road-sharing system where pedestrians were encouraged to walk out in front of traffic! Apparently this was meant to make drivers more careful. Shopping in Ashford has definitely improved over the last 10 years but still isn't particularly great. Next to the station is the Mcarthur Glen shopping centre which looks like a huge tent and is full of mostly uninspiring retail outlets. This place is just outside the town centre and much more easily accessible than the town centre. Its highlights include a G... more

Ashford - Gateway to Europe? Well I guess that's not a bad tagline as it suggests that the town's main purpose is enabling people to get to somewhere better.

The signage in the town is very good and it is easy to ... Read the complete review

Ashford maintains a serious hold on my affections; nevermind that it's nothing like the town I grew up in from 1960 until I left for the big wide world in 1979. No other town I know has changed so much in the last 25 years. I still visit regularly as my parents live just outside in the ancestral seat (well, 4 generations of the family know it) and there always seems to be something new or something missing. As a boy in the '60s, I can remember going to town and walking down the broad High St (at 120' one of the widest in the country, built originally to accommodate the market, the oldest chartered company in the country) to have a cup of ...
