Discover the heart of Medway

One of the south-east's most aspiring and developing destinations.

A place that has it all

Chatham is so close to the City and yet it feels so far away with its relaxed and natural setting. The Great Lines Heritage Park is literally on your doorstep and is one of Medway’s most impressive green spaces. Home to Fort Amherst and over 70 hectares of open space, this land once protected one of the country’s largest naval dockyards.

The town centre is less than two miles away and has a wide range of restaurants and shopping opportunities. You'll also find plenty of well-known restaurant chains as well as traditional pubs and modern bars to try including the Ship & Trades and The Command House. Families are exceptionally well catered for in Chatham with a variety of top schools, catering for a range of ages from nursery, up to secondary schools and beyond.

One of the best ways to explore the area is by water. Medway Watersports is less than a ten-minute drive away and offers a range of activities including sailing, power boating, canoeing and kayaking. There are plenty of other ways to get to know the coastline: a trip to Botany Bay for a surf lesson, a walk around Ramsgate's Royal Harbour Marina to soak up the stunning waterside views or you could try your hand at scuba diving with a visit to Leybourne Lake.

A legacy reborn

Positioned on top of the hill overlooking some of the town's most impressive scenery, Kitchener Barracks has a special place in Chatham's history. This iconic site has a rich military heritage and a distinctive character. Now, over 250 years since the barracks buildings were originally built, this fascinating landmark is being transformed into a vibrant new community.
