Visit Medway

Welcome to Medway
Beyond Your Greatest Expectations!

Medway is bursting with so many things to see and do. From fantastic festivals and events to unique experiences for days out or a short-break, there are more reasons than ever to discover everything we have to offer.

2024 is a big year for Medway! 40 years ago, the Medway African and Caribbean Association was formed, and we saw the start of the former Royal Dockyard regeneration, turning it into a thriving heritage site, university campus, and community we see today. In celebration, Medway Culture Fest 24 will provide a year-long programme of cultural activities and events.

There's no arguing that Rochester's magnificent cathedral and imposing castle that dominates the Medway skyline are on the must-see list when exploring the area. But are you aware of Medway's heritage attractions to visit? From Eastgate House, an amazing Tudor mansion, discovering the works of Charles Dickens at the 'Making of Mr. Dickens' exhibition at the Guildhall Museum, to our arts and cultural offer across our galleries and theatres. Medway's military and maritime past can be discovered at The Historic Dockyard Chatham, Fort Amherst and at the Royal Engineers Museum - Kent’s largest military museum and one of the most important military collections in the UK.

Whether it's dining in a restaurant, exploring the heritage attractions, or catching a show at the theatre, you will find it here.
