Located about twenty miles outside of London, the historic town of Gravesend lies in the English county of Kent on the banks of the Thames estuary.
One of the town’s best known landmarks is Tilbury Fort, which was built by Henry VIII to protect England against the then-hostile French and Spanish forces. Since then the fort has become a symbol of British maritime defence and today it is popular with history buffs from Kent and further afield.
Another beautiful area of Gravesend is Shorne Wood country park, a 288-acre park of woodlands, lakes, wetlands and meadows. Once a part of a larger estate, it was passed on to the local council for public enjoyment. Today the park is extremely popular with locals and tourists alike and during the summer months, it buzzes with colour and life form the varied flora and fauna of the area.
