Gillingham offers an array of attractions

Gillingham could be the perfect place for anyone seeking a suburban getaway within commuting distance of the capital, but also within a stone's throw of the coast and the associated pleasures this can bring.

The town also offers excellent transport links to the rest of the south-east and beyond via the A2, the M2 and an excellent railway service.

One of the standout attractions of Gillingham is the Royal Engineers Museum and it is certainly worth a visit for anyone wishing to find out more about the history of the area. Providing an in-depth history of the Corps of Royal Engineers, the museum highlights the skill, courage and ingenuity of these brave soldiers throughout recent centuries.

Exhibits include a map of Waterloo used by the Duke of Wellington during the Napoleonic War, weapons forged and used in the Zulu War, 25 Victoria Crosses earned by members of the regiment and a number of impressive bridge-laying tanks.

Meanwhile, Medway Park could be an attraction for those wishing to get active in Gillingham, with a six-lane swimming pool perfect for all the family, with a segregated shallow end for kids, as well as a number of associated sports facilities.

It is not just about things to do during the day that makes Gillingham a great all-round destination though, with plenty of buzz also to be felt after dark, with a vibrant nightlife of restaurants, bars and clubs to meet the tastes of all-comers.

The Barge, the Three Mariners and the Spyglass and Kettle are just some of the many public houses open to visitors and residents alike in Gillingham, while some of the best eateries in the town include Crispins, the Hollywood Bowl and Beijing Inn.

All in all, there is a wide variety of property for sale in Gillingham, with different types of home up for grabs in each of the town's distinct districts. ADNFCR-1222-ID-801767246-ADNFCR
