It’s not until you spend time in a place that you get to appreciate all it has to offer – and that’s certainly the case with Gravesham, a borough full of welcome surprises.


The difficulty will be deciding what to do with your time. That will, of course, depend on how long you’re planning to stay, who you’re coming with, what you’re in the mood for and how active – or otherwise – you want to be.

There is of course the Great British weather to consider too, although being in the Southeast, we’re lucky to enjoy some of the sunniest weather in the country. That said, there’s always plenty to do come rain or shine.

It always helps to have a plan, and that’s why we’ve put together some ideas that will help you make the most of your visit or longer stay in Gravesham.

Whether you’re a first-time visitor to the area or a local looking for ideas for things to do with your family, there’s lots to choose from and return for.

Click on the links above and follow in the trail of some of our local heroes, and the story of Gravesham’s role as part of Kent’s last line of defence.

Explore our country parks and open spaces or immerse yourself in our growing list of experiential tourist attractions – from mini-golf and wine tours to zombie escapes.
There’s plenty of walks and cycle routes to explore some of Kent’s most stunning countryside – from the Higham Marshes to the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you’re coming in a group or work in travel trade, we can help with bespoke itineraries that will ensure you make the most of your time with us – and help us to spread the word.

From the best experiences to unmissable heritage and countryside, Gravesham has it all.
