The local area
Gillingham has grown from its origins as a small hamlet around the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, and has a history embellished with maritime and military importance thanks to its location on the south bank of the River Medway. The modern town still features its historic dockyard, while local conveniences such as the Pentagon shopping centre provide residents with easily accessible amenities.
There are some highly rated schools in the area to boost Gillingham’s appeal to families with children; primary options include Bredhurst CofE, St Mary the Virgin CofE and Kings Bastion’s Brompton-Westbrook Primary. Rainham School for Girls, the Howard School on Derwent Way and Gillingham School are among the area’s highly rated choices at secondary level. MidKent College provides further education in the town, which also plays host to the Universities at Medway campus that offers higher education facilities.
Gillingham offers a strong location close to the southeast English coast, particularly as the M2 motorway runs to the south of town and heads east towards seaside spots such as Margate and west towards London. The capital can be reached in less than 45 minutes due to the high speed train links to St Pancras station, making Gillingham a viable place to live for commuters; slower services take just under an hour to reach stations such as Cannon Street and Victoria.
