Chatham in Kent, near Rochester, is full of maritime history. Once an important and strategic naval dockyard it is now home to the historic dockyard and museum where various ships, maritime equipment and a history of the area is recorded in detail at this popular visitor attraction.
The town of Chatham is adorned with many objects depicting its naval history. The town is located on the Medway and has clearly seen better days. Apart from the brand new bus station the town itself looks a little shabby in places and has a very varied ethnic mix which can be seen in the colourful local independent shops.
Chatham has a good mix of restaurants and cafe's and many languages can be heard in the busy high street area during the rush hours. A distinctly multi cultural town with a proud history.
