Adisham's only shop shut down in 2004, and the Bull's Head public house has also recently closed. The village church is dedicated to Holy Innocents; and there is a thriving primary school.
Adisham has two book clubs - The Adisham Book Club and The Adisham Bookmarks - which review a wide selection of books in a friendly social setting.
Adisham railway station opened on 22 July 1861. It is on the Chatham Main Line - Dover Branch. The village lies on one of the routes that formed part of the Pilgrims Way immortalised by Geoffrey Chaucer in his book The Canterbury Tales, and in 2010 was the subject of a villagers' protest when wealthy former banker to the Queen Timothy Steel tried to ban walkers from the route. After a public enquiry villagers were granted several rights of way through his property including the path of the former Pilgrims Way.
In The Dying Days, the last novel of the Doctor Who New Adventures series, The Doctor is portrayed as living near Adisham in the fictional Allen Road, leading the Ice Warriors to attack the village with poison gas.
