Retail and quiet life in Gravesend

Retail and quiet life in Gravesend

One of the notions that people have when they are living away from one of the big settlements in the UK is that they will be separate to everything important that is going on, with nowhere to shop and nothing to do.

However, while there are a great deal of smaller places that do feel cut off from the rest of the country, in some areas, there are thriving retail centres and towns of strong importance that exist. One such settlement can be discovered when you head out looking for property for sale in Gravesend.

The Kent town's position on the south bank of the Thames means that it has long been seen as an important link to London, and this means that the settlement has also been able to thrive on its own, primarily as a retail centre.

With a host of shops in Gravesend, it means that residents don't need to travel elsewhere when they need to buy goods. There are also a raft of local stores, allowing people to purchase goods sourced or made in the area around Kent.

In addition to this, there has recently been a farmers' market opened in Gravesend, which means that people are now able to get the freshest of fresh in produce from their own town.

For families looking to move to the area in the north of Kent, there is further good news, with the education sector in Gravesend being particularly strong. There are eight secondary schools and a range of primary schools in the town, giving scope for parents bringing their families to have a look at them all and decide what is best for their children.

Away from school, families might also want to experience a bit of the culture and history of Gravesend, and the town will not disappoint. Given its position on the river, the town has a pier where people can enjoy a quiet walk with their families.

It also has a range of other landmarks, including the likes of the picturesque Gravesend Clock Tower.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801530429-ADNFCR
