Gravesend is situated on the borders of the Medway Towns and is approximately six miles from the M25. It is conveniently located for easy access to London and offers the benefits of both a busy shopping town and a tranquil semi-rural village. Landmarks include the Pocahontas statue, the pier and the clock tower. Gravesend is very multi-cultural and boasts the biggest Sikh temple in Europe. Nearby Gravesham is a very historical area that has very strong links with Charles Dickens.
Gravesend offers a wide selection of shops and supermarkets from Asda and Morrisons to department stores like Debenhams and Marks & Spencer. There is a High Street situated in the town centre, which includes independent fashion shops, collectables stores, a variety of coffee houses and antique shops. This High Street is also known as The Heritage Quarter, which leads down towards the River Medway. Gravesend town centre also features banks, beauty salons, bakers, butchers, newsagents and a Post Office. The market hall is also open six days a week.
Gravesend and the surrounding areas have something for all ages and cultures. If it’s the outdoors you enjoy then you can visit one of several country parks, including Shorne Country Park – a large ancient woodland site where you can enjoy nature trails, adventure play areas, educational programmes about nature and wildlife, fishing and an eco-friendly coffee shop. One of the more famous attractions in Gravesend is the burial site of Princess Pocahontas in St. Georges Church.

Gravesham was recorded in the Domesday Book in 1086 as belonging to Odo, The Bishop of Bayeux. Many locals believe that the name of the town is linked to the plague when bodies were brought down from London for burial – resulting in Graves-End. However, the name Gravesend was recorded 500 years before the plague. One of the area’s most notable figures is Charles Dickens, who is associated with Gravesend and the surrounding villages. He honeymooned in Chalk, found inspiration for his novel The Pickwick Papers at Cobham, and he lived and died in the nearby village of Higham.
Gravesend has a wide range of property types, ranging from Victorian conversions and modern new build flats to 1930s semi-detached family homes and extensive country houses valued in excess of £1 million.
