The Medway mix: vibrant and sustainable town centres
The retail sector plays a vital role in the future of Medway and
it’s an ideal place to be if you’re a stakeholder or a potential
Medway is strategically located at the heart of the Thames
Gateway and close to north-west Europe, right on the
high-speed rail link with cities like Lille and Brussels.
The town centres of Medway are remarkable for their
individuality. Separated by no more than three miles (4.82km) and
just the width of the River Medway in the case of Rochester and
Strood, they have developed distinct retail identities with
complementary offers serving some 250,000 residents and attracting
more than three million tourists who come to visit the area’s many
heritage attractions and festivals each year.
