Gravesend Old Town Hall

The Town Hall dates from 1836 and is built on the site of the previous Town Hall.

Through an archway under the portico leads a covered way to the town's Market, one of the earliest in England, dating from 1268. There is a mural on the rear wall just before you enter the Market. This is the original arms of the town, a boat carrying monks steered by a porcupine. To the left as you face the market stands what was once the Town's old police station and jailhouse.

The Town Hall has recently gone through an extensive refurbishment and is now a venue for exhibitions, celebrations and conference facilities.

Fully accessible toilets and baby changing facilities are located nearby.
