About Ashford Borough Council
Ashford's countryside is full of attractions; the North Down, the flat farmlands, the exposed areas of the Romney Marsh and the mixture of woods and rolling countryside of the Weald of Kent.
Leisure activities include hot air ballooning, gliding, golf, angling and walking. There is also an opportunity to watch international athletics at the Julie Rose Stadium.
Ashford is situated at the centre of the Channel Tunnel corridor. Within the corridor is the world's busiest roll-on-roll-off shipping terminal at Dover, the Channel Tunnel and Euro Tunnel at Folkestone, the M20 motorway, five domestic railway lines, High Speed 1 and the Eurostar International Passenger Terminal. There is also easy access to Kent International Airport (Manston) and the deep-water port at Sheerness. Such an extensive communications network has generated a varied commercial base. Ashford boasts Europe's most modern livestock market and award winning English wines, racing dinghies, rocking horses, goldsmiths and roulette wheels.
