The Medway

Published: Monday 28th Oct 2013

I went to a Tourism Seminar the other day in Chatham. Chatham is applying for status as a World Heritage Site and the five towns situated on the River Medway (Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham, Rainham and Strood) are applying for City status as a new city of Medway. This area has been targeted for regeneration and the riverside has been greatly enhanced with marinas, waterfront dining and new housing complexes with amazing views and facilities. Chatham's naval and military heritage has been brilliantly preserved in the magnificent Historic Dockyard, Upnor Castle, Fort Amherst and the Pembroke Barracks. Rochester has a splendid castle and Kent's other majestic Cathedral. It is already a marvellous place to explore.
