Tourism and travel

Our Tourism team is based at our award winning Visitor Centre at Towncentric, in the heart of the town at the back of St George's Shopping Centre.  Visit the centre for ideas on where to go, what to do, where to stay, events, local souvenirs and much more.  The centre's aim is to create an attractive, lively and prosperous area people want to visit; as well as a place where people can shop, work, live and play.

The centre works hard to promote our visitor attractions based on history, culture and above all our unique riverside setting. When you visit our website you can review the events on offer around the borough, discover places to visit and things to do in and around Gravesend, not forgetting the vast array of shops and restaurants to cater for every taste and ambience. Gravesend has the lot!
