The local area
Gravesend is an ancient town with a rich history, and much more lively than its name suggests. The town’s heritage includes being the place where Pocahontas died as she was heading back to the United States, and her body is believed to be buried at St George’s church. Nowadays Gravesend is a hugely popular commuter town with excellent transport links to London.
Thanks to the inception of high speed services in 2009, it is possible to reach the capital’s St Pancras station in less than 25 minutes, with slower – and slightly cheaper – services taking closer to an hour. The M25 motorway passes to the west of town, connecting Gravesend to the national road network, while the M2 lies just to the southeast of town, heading towards Canterbury and coastal Margate, and the M20 makes for Folkestone and Dover.
There are some excellent schools in the area to further enhance Gravesend’s standing, including St Joseph’s Catholic Primary in Northfleet and Cobham Primary. Secondary options include Gravesend Grammar, Northfleet Technology College, Northfleet School for Girls and Thamesview School on Thong Lane.
