Gravesend lies on the South bank of the River Thames in North West Kent. The town has one of the longest running markets in the country and the 8 year-old Gravesend Town Pier is the world's oldest surviving cast iron pier. Other popular spots include: the impressive clock tower, based on the same design as Big Ben and Windmill Hill, which is close to the town centre and provides extensive views over the River Thames. Car hire in Gravesend allows you to explore the Shorne Woods Country Park, which is just a 1-minute drive away and has some great walks.
The waterside town of Gravesend has a lot to offer visitors. The impressive clock tower modelled on the Westminster tower that houses Big Ben is a must-see and the 80-year-old town pier now houses a bar and restaurant, making it an ideal riverside lunch spot for visitors. Hiring a car in Gravesend enables you to travel further afield and allows you to experience a full day's worth of ambling pleasure at Lullingstone Castle and World Garden. Alternatively, if you enjoy history, visit the Tudor Blockhouse and Shornemead Forts which are easily accessible if you rent a car in Gravesend.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
