Medway has a rich maritime history dating back over 400 years.
The historic dockyards were the birthplace of many famous ships including Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory. Once one of the most important naval dockyards in the country, it is now the most complete dockyard of the age of sail to survive in the world.
Today you are much more likely to see various sailing boats with people enjoying a day out than a “man of war.”
Chatham town centre is the major shopping destination in the Medway towns and boasts a fully pedestrianised high street.
Property prices in Medway are amongst the most reasonable in the county.
Nestling next to Medway is Rochester with its beautiful Cathedral and Castle. Rochester also boasts a close connection with Charles Dickens, which becomes obvious with a stroll down the high street.
