Chantry Heritage Centre


The Chantry offers a wonderful insight into the heritage of the borough of Gravesend, its fasinating exhibits provide visitors of all ages with a snapshot of times gone by in an interesting and stimulating environment.

The building fell into disuse after the Reformation and the chapel became an inn towards the end of the 17th century and later became part of the fort and defence works erected on the site. Today the building is promoted as the Chantry Heritage Centre, housing a fascinating insight into the history and heritage of Gravesend, Northfleet and the nearby villages.
