There are plenty of things to see and do in Gravesend and Gravesham!


The borough is steeped in history and our historical, heritage and countryside sites are not to be missed. And if you’re looking for things to do with the family then we guarantee that you will find them in and around Gravesend.

Experience Gravesend’s riverside and its maritime heritage. You can also discover the variety of shipping entering and leaving the Port from a number of publicly accessible vantage points and enjoy river trips.

From the early settlements to the present day. Learn about the historic places of worship and the famous people associated with the Borough. Years of history can also be found on Discover Gravesham, Virtual Museum.

Nestling between the River Thames and the North Downs, the countryside to the east and south of Gravesend is an exceptional Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, containing Ancient Woodland and Country Parks, and historic villages of windmills, country houses and cricket on the green.

With a cluster of country parks, community woodlands, historic parklands and the CycloPark, Gravesham is strengthening its appeal in providing a range of quality outdoors activities for the enjoyment of visitors. There is so much more to see on foot or by bike in Gravesend and the villages around.

And with a developing tourism offer, Gravesham is keen to encourage group visits and we tailor opportunities to meet individual group requirements.
