Well Presented Museum

Small museum but lots of interesting exhibits particularly about Gravesend's maritime past. The volunteers from the local history society were helpful and there were some interesting local history books to buy.

Visit the oldest building in Gravesend
Nov 2018 • Couples
Located within the same grounds as the New Tavern Fort is Gravesend’s oldest building which used to be a 14th century chapel and then later a tavern. The volunteers are really helpful, there’s a free self guided audio, and you’ll learn a lot about the history of the local area across several centuries.

Sadly it’s only open weekends and bank holidays April to September 12 noon – 5 pm

Time your visit wisely
Sep 2017 • Family
Located within the grounds of New Tavern Fort is Gravesend's oldest building, although not the largest of buildings. it contains elements that are 14th Century. As well as the building itself, which is very interesting, it contains a lot of history about the local area, which is very seeing too. Sadly it is only open 12-5pm at weekends and Bank Holidays, from April until October. Admission outside those times are by appointment only and it is closed from October until April. So if you get a chance to go whilst in the area, it is highly recommended.

The atmosphere here was amazing. So much history. The fantastic lady volunteer (didn't catch her name) was all too helpful. It is free entry!! (Donations can and should be left) there is an audio tour which I would recommend.

Local history

I was really impressed with the local history displayed within The Chantry. It showed Gravesend as it was and the photographs told many stories of Gravesend past. A great place for history buffs.

The Chantry is so under visited be locals and travelling sightseers. The building is worth seeing without the numerous articles of history, both local and nearby. It looks larger inside that it gives the impression on looking from the outside. Very well worth a visit.

Gravesend history in pictures
Aug 2015 • Solo
This Chantry has a wonderful collection of new and old photographs that you can see to compare Gravesend past and present. There are many artefacts in the Chantry associated with the River Thames. In all a very interesting building too with a lot of history.
