There is so much more to see on foot or by bike in Gravesend and the villages around. It all depends how much time you have and how far you need to go.


Walk among ancient woodland at Cobham and Ashenbank Woods or alongside the Thames & Medway Canal with its fascinating military, social and engineering history – and a tranquillity all its own.

Follow sections of the long distance Saxon Shore Way, Wealdway or North Downs Way and enjoy some of the most magnificent views in the county. With a criss-cross of footpaths to enjoy across beautiful Kent countryside there’s so much to explore for future stays in Gravesham.

Discover the Darnley Trail within the historic landscape of Cobham Park including the mysterious Mausoleum and the memorial to Lord Darnley’s toe.

Take your bike along the National Cycle Route 177 that weave its way across through Northfleet and Gravesend or enjoy our network of bridleways on horseback. Any Tour de Gravesham is incomplete without Cyclopark, Kent’s centre for first class cycling, running and extreme sports facilities. With a lot of events throughout the year, it is also an ideal venue for families.

You can also book on one of our Gravesend Historical Bike tours with your guide providing some fascinating facts on places passed along the way. Set aside half a day for this and then set a diary date to come and explore some more.
