Gravesend is a town in Kent that is situated about four miles east of Dartford and the Dartford Crossing, and is directly across the river from Tilbury.
The town of Gravesend is a busy town in Kent with a population of more than 60,000 people and strong rail and road transport links. It's less than 30 miles from central London and the town has always been the base for much of the local activity on the River Thames. The town is one of the oldest in the area and its market charter dates back to 1268, emphasising the town's role as a local centre for trade and commerce.
Gravesend has its own waterfront, which has been redeveloped over the years and includes the world's oldest surviving town pier, which was built in 1834. There's also a passenger ferry, which connects the town with Tilbury, avoiding the need for a long-winded drive to Dartford and then back along the other side of the river.
The A2 runs directly by Gravesend, providing direct connections to the M2 and M25 motorways. The town's young, active population and diverse mixture of businesses means that van hire is in steady demand, and local van hire branches meet the majority of this demand with a typical range of rental vans:
