Medway is one of the south-east’s most aspiring and developing destinations, marrying its celebrated heritage with a rapidly emerging continental-style cultural scene.

It is ideally located, close to London and within easy reach of the channel ports. Medway takes its name from the magnificent river that flows through it and comprises of the three major towns of Rochester, Chatham, and Gillingham.

Individually, the towns have their own place in history and unique identity – in particular Rochester with its iconic castle and cathedral and connections to Charles Dickens, and Chatham with its maritime and military heritage and defences. Together, they provide a diverse and exciting shared story visitor experience.

The area is the south-east’s festival and events capital – hosting more than 30 days of free festivals and events each year.  From bustling street festivals, theatre performances to major international sporting events at Medway Park.
