Gravesend Promenade Gardens
Thames Barge off Town Pier
The Gateway to London
Gravesend is an historic gateway to the River Thames and was a landing port for
shipping from all over the world. Inbound craft arrived secure in the knowledge
that they had completed their voyage to London
For the first time in over 100 years, British and overseas visitors to the River
Thames can again be made welcome to moor at Gravesend. The Town Pier is the
oldest surviving cast iron pier in the world and has been fully restored to
allow its original function of arrival and departiure from Gravesend by river.
It is also home to a uniquely located
restaurant and bar. The pontoon, which is accessed via the pier, can accommodate a range of vessels from
visiting yachts to the historic
Waverley paddle steamer and Balmoral
Located on the south bank of the Thames, Gravesend lies approximately half way
between the Thames Estuary and Tower Bridge, the distance in either direction
being that which most craft can comfortably achieve on a tide.
‘Waiting for the tide’ at Gravesend was common practice by seamen of the last century and the tide
cycle of ebb and flood remains exactly the same to this day.
Today, Gravesend is an attractive destination in its own right.
- Shop from a range of specialist independent retailers and established high
- Explore the history of a town with connections to Charles Dickens and Gordon
of Khartoum. Gravesend was a favourite resort destination of the Victorians,
hence its magnificent piers.
- Connect with the castles, stately homes and magnificent countryside of rural
Kent immediately to the south or to London St Pancras, just 22 minutes away by
