Medway Overview

The conurbation of Gillingham, Rochester, Chatham, Rainham and Strood is traditionally known as the Medway towns, and its proximity to London has made it one of the most desirable places to live in the UK. Previously famous for being a maritime and ship building destination, the Medway towns are now some of the most popular places for commuters who work in the capital but want to live somewhere more tranquil.

As well as being only 35 miles away from London, towns such as Chatham are attractive in their own right. The level of investment pouring into Medway is significant, and complements the already impressive higher education and business sectors. More and more people are moving to the area to take advantage of the opportunities and unbeatable location on offer, and this impressive population growth is predicted to continue well into the future as the trend of people leaving London shows little sign of abating. This is the perfect time to invest in an area which is already undergoing an incredible transformation.
